Lethbridge Police have charged two males and are seeking a third in connection with an incident late Tuesday night where a 15-year-old boy was assaulted in a west side neighbourhood.
On June 28, 2016 at approximately 11:45 p.m. a 15-year-old male was walking along Columbia Boulevard at Rutgers Road West when he was approached by three unknown males. One of the subjects spoke to the male but the boy was wearing headphones and as he did not know the subjects continued walking. The subjects proceeded to attack the victim, knocked him to the ground and repeatedly kicked him before fleeing the area. The victim was transported to hospital and treated for soft tissue injuries.
Following further investigation police identified the subjects and two of them – a 17-year-old male and 18-year-old male – were located and arrested a short time later. Efforts are ongoing to locate the third male, who is also 17.
Guy Charlton Mountain Horse, 18, of Cardston, is charged with one count of assault. Mountain Horse was remanded in custody to appear in court today.
A 17-year-old male, of Standoff, who cannot be identified, is charged with one count of assault. He was remanded in custody to appear in court today.
