Suspect charged in homicide

  • Print

A male suspect has been charged by police with second degree murder following the death of a young man last week.

The deceased, Joshua Bentley, 18, and a 20-year-old victim of the attack were at a house party on the evening of Jan. 24 with the suspect, though according to a release issued by police, they did not know each other. According to police, the suspect and two females left the party before Bentley and the other victim, but waited for them in his vehicle nearby. When the victims left the party, the suspect allegedly attacked them.

Bentley received extensive trauma to his upper body while the 20-year-old also received an injury to the upper body. Police say the two victims then fled the suspect, reaching the Osborne Street Bridge where police and emergency services found them.  Bentley later succumbed to his injuries in the early hours of Jan. 25.

Through an investigation by the homicide unit, patrol members, street crimes unity, and the forensic identification section, 26-year-old Mowlid Korane Mohamed was arrested by police.

Mohamed has been charged by police with second degree murder, attempted murder, assault, and uttering threats.

He remains in the provincial remand centre and the investigation is ongoing.
