Brutal attack at West End apartment

  • Print

A party in 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 in custody charged with attempted murder in connection with the event, which happened early Monday morning.

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

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.

It was only after he was eventually left alone he was able to break free from the apartment.

He got 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 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.
