A rally was held in Edmonton Friday to protest violence against women.

The protest comes a week after city police arrested an Aboriginal women, who had been sexually assaulted, for breach of conditions.

Police said days later, after refusing to speak to the media, the victim never said she was assaulted when police arrived at a motel after her mother called 911. The woman was bleeding and missing a tooth.

It’s an issue organizers of the rally say needs to be addressed.

APTN National News reporter Keith Laboucan went to the rally.
