Group attack case in court
A remanded Red Deer man appeared by closed circuit television in court on Wednesday in connection with last spring’s group attack on another man at a downtown apartment building.
Cameron Coles, 26, was one of four men charged after an attack that sent a Red Deer man to hospital with serious injuries, including machete wounds to his face and head, late in the evening of April 9.
The incident occurred in the lobby area of the Ranchers Valley apartment at 51st Avenue and 49th Street at about 11:25 p.m.
Coles is waiting to get a new lawyer through Legal Aid.
He will return to court next Wednesday morning.
Three other accused — Joshua Severin, 19, Victor Bricker, 20, and Morgan Riley, 18 — pleaded guilty earlier.
Riley pleaded guilty to common assault and was sentenced to time served.
Bricker and Severin were each sentenced to two years in federal prison for aggravated assault.
