Bail will be addressed late next week for four young men accused in the brutal attack of a Red Deer man on April 9.

Victor Bricker, 20, Cameron Cole, 26, Morgan Riley, 18, and Joshua Severin, 19, are jointly charged with aggravated assault and possession of a machete for a purpose dangerous to the public.

All four were brought before Red Deer provincial court Judge Gordon Deck on Wednesday afternoon to answer to those charges, plus additional charges laid against Bricker, Cole and Severin.

The three young men appeared together via closed-circuit TV from the Red Deer Remand Centre while Morgan, the youngest, followed proceedings from the courtroom prisoner’s box.

Along with the joint charges, Bricker, Cole and Severin are accused of breaching conditions of probation while Severin is also accused in a separate assault.

All four have reserved their pleas and will remain in custody pending their next court appearance, set for Friday, April 27.

A 33-year-old man was walking with his girlfriend in the city core at about 11:25 p.m. when he was allegedly attacked. He was taken to hospital and required surgery.
