Three Injured In Assaults

Saskatoon Police responded to a weapons call in the Lief Erickson complex on Rusholme Road just before midnight on Friday, December 26, 2008, where it was reported that a male was attempting to stab someone.

Two males were taken to RUH with stab wounds that are believed to be non-life threatening, and will remain hospitalized overnight for observation. A 17 year old female received minor injuries from an assault by the suspect, but was not taken to hospital, and a fourth 18 year old male victim was not injured.

As a result of the subsequent investigation, a 17 year old male has been arrested and charged with three counts of Assault with a Weapon, and one count of Common Assault. He will appear before a Justice of the Peace later today.
