Two teens charged after assault in May in St. John’s neighbourhood

Winnipeg police say two teens have been charged after allegedly assaulting another teen on May 14.

WPS says on May 14, officers responded a report that a 15-year-old girl had been assaulted in St. John’s neighbourhood.

The girl reported that she was with a group of teens that were known to her.

While walking near Main Street and Aberdeen Avenue she reported that she was challenged to a fight by some of the people in the group.

During this time, she was rendered defenceless and was kicked and punched by one individual.

She claims after the assault, she continued to walk with the group as she feared walking alone in the area.

The group then walked to St. John’s Park, where the girl was then allegedly assaulted a second time by the same person.

It is believed that members of the group watched the assault and recorded it on their phones.

Police say she was able to escape the group and run to safety where she then called for help. Police say in the following days, she then received threats over social media.

WPS also note that some of the group reportedly identified as members of Project Surge.

Project Surge is known to police. WPS says the group is made of youths who have been linked to several incidents including property crime, nuisance offences and violent crimes.

Since, Winnipeg police have charged a 16-year-old bot with two counts of assault and uttering threats to kill.

A 15-year-old girl was also charged with two counts of assault and causing a disturbance.
