Regina, Saskatchewan – A 23 year-old female and a 20 year-old male have become the third and fourth persons charged in connection with an Attempted Murder case from May of this year. The victim is a 14 year-old male.

This investigation began on Wednesday, May 11, 2016, at about 1:00 p.m., when police were dispatched to a house in the 1100 block of Cameron Street for a report of a seriously injured young male. Police and EMS attended and located a male, later identified as a 14 year-old, in serious condition inside the residence. The victim had injuries consistent with a serious, sustained physical assault and was taken to hospital by EMS. Early investigation into this incident led to identification of two suspects: a 27 year-old male, who was arrested and charged on May 14, 2016; and a 17 year-old male youth, who was arrested the following day. Both males were subsequently charged with Attempted Murder and made their first court appearances on Monday, May 16, 2016.

Both of these individuals are now also facing charges in connection with the same incident.
