Mounties west of Edmonton are on the hunt for a man and a woman who are both believed to be armed and dangerous.

Police say Neil Troy Gow, 35, and Teri Lynn Johnson, 35, have warrants issued for their arrest on a number of charges, including assaulting an officer, flight from police, and possession of stolen property.

Mounties allege the pair escaped after a police pursuit when the stolen vehicle they were in slammed into a patrol car in a community 130 kilometres west of Edmonton.
