Two charged after men confined, attacked

  • Print

A party at a West End suite took a brutal turn after a guest wound up robbed, confined and attacked with a variety of weapons — including a syringe.

Two men are currently in custody charged with attempted murder in connection with the alarming event, which happened early Monday monday morning.

The victim, 19, was a guest at a gathering in the 600 block of Maryland Street when police say he began being harassed by the suspects.

He was then confined in the suite and attacked with a knife, metal objects, broken glass, a chair, a plate and the syringe, court records show.

He was also robbed of his phone and threatened with harm if he tried to leave, police said Friday.

It was only after he was left alone that he was able to "break free" from the home and run out to the street where he flagged down a passing patrol car, police said.

He was rushed to hospital by ambulance and has since been upgraded to stable condition.

Another man, 18, was also confined, threatened and robbed in the same incident, records show. As well, a woman, 30, allegedly had her phone stolen.

Nicholas Halcrow Jewels, 24, and Timothy Jordan Hastings, 20, are in custody facing 24 charges each, including the attempted murder counts.

They were each arrested Wednesday, police said.

Jewels was on probation at the time stemming from a March 2013 conviction in Brandon.

Both men are presumed innocent.
