Court proceedings and three of four men accused in a machete attack on another man have been adjourned for two more weeks.
Victor Bricker, 20, Cameron Cole, 26, and Joshua Severin, 19, were accused along with Morgan Riley, 18, of aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose in relation to an attack of April 9.
Red Deer City RCMP allege that a 33-year-old man was walking with his girlfriend in downtown Red Deer at about 11:30 p.m. when they were set upon by four attackers armed with a machete.
While the woman suffered minor injuries, the man was severely injured and had to be taken to hospital for extensive treatment.
Bricker, Cole and Severin all appeared in Red Deer provincial court on Friday to via closed-circuit TV from the Red Deer Remand Centre where they remain in custody. They return to court to enter pleas on May 23.
While there was an application to have charges against all four joined into a single case, Riley’s case was separated and a new charge of aggravated assault was laid. Riley had been previously released on a recognizance, but has since been charged with breaching conditions of his release.
