Assault With A Weapon

Saskatoon Police responded to a 911 call in the 400 block of Avenue G South regarding a large fight where one individual was apparently being struck with a board.

Attending SPS Members learned that the large fight was between individuals that were on the street and a second group of individuals that exited the house. The fight apparently erupted because the occupant of the house was accused of providing small portions of Halloween treats.

The board referred to in the initial complaint turned out to be a fence post removed from one of the residences in the area, and additionally a 9 year old girl showed signs of having been exposed to bear spray. The spray had been deployed towards the girl's mother and missed. The girl's mother had also been the victim of an assault in this occurrence.

Both female victims were treated at the scene by MD Ambulance members.

An 18 year old male has been charged with one count of Assault with a Weapon, and an 18 year old female has been charged with two counts of Assault with a Weapon and one count of Possession of a Prohibited Weapon.
