Two brothers turned themselves into Winnipeg police on Tuesday after an assault at a bus shelter on October 13.
Police responded to the area of Portage Avenue and Tylehurst Street at around 2:10 a.m. that day, where two men were accused of assaulting a person inside the shelter. A 48-year-old man tried to intervene, which turned the suspects’ attention to him. He was seriously injured and taken to hospital in unstable condition. He has since been released and continues to receive treatment.
The 41-year-old man, who was first assaulted, declined medical attention and police involvement.
Two suspects in the attack were identified by police with help from the public.
The 18-year-old and 20-year-old, both from Winnipeg, were arrested at police headquarters and have been charged with aggravated assault.
They were released on a promise to appear.
