Police investigating assault of two men

Lethbridge Police are investigating an assault after two men were stabbed at a southside apartment building Tuesday night.

On August 22, 2017 at approximately 7:35 p.m. police responded to the 1400 block of Ashgrove Road after receiving a 911 call reporting two men had been assaulted. Upon arrival police located two 20-year-old men with stab wounds. The victims were transported to Chinook Regional Hospital and one of the males was subsequently transferred to Calgary. Both remain in hospital in serious but stable condition.

The investigation is still in its early stages but has determined a group of people inside an apartment were involved in a dispute which escalated to a physical altercation. A 35-year-old male suspect was located a short time later and arrested without incident. Police are currently working to locate two additional suspects. The parties involved are known to each other. Charges are pending.

At this time there is no further information to release. An update will be provided when possible.
