Charges have been withdrawn against one of four men accused in a brutal slashing attack in Red Deer late in the evening of April 9.

Red Deer City RCMP allege that a group of attackers armed with a machete stabbed, punched and kicked a 33-year-old man while he was walking with his girlfriend in downtown Red Deer at about 11:25 p.m. The man was hospitalized for treatment. The woman he was with also suffered some injury, but was not taken for treatment, police said at the time.

Victor Bricker, 20, Cameron Cole, 26, Joshua Severin, 19, and Morgan Riley, 18, all appeared in Red Deer provincial court on Friday to answer charges of aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Bricker, Cole and Severin are also charged with breaching probation and Severin is facing additional charges in relation to a separate assault.

Charges against Riley were withdrawn. The other three men remain in custody pending their next court appearance on Friday.
