RCMP have arrested a 17-year-old male youth and charged him with several offences after he struck two men with a pipe in St. Lazare.
In the early hours of Dec. 2, RCMP from Prairie Mountain responded to reports of an assault in St. Lazare. Officers attended the local area hospital where they learned that two victims — a 24-year-old man from St. Lazare and a 25-year-old man from the RM of Ellice — informed officers that the suspect struck them with a metal pipe over a disagreement on the street in St. Lazare.
The injuries sustained from the attack are considered extensive, but non-life threatening.
The youth faces two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of assault with a weapon and one count of possessing a weapon for dangerous purposes.
He will appear in court in Brandon on Dec. 4.
