Two teenagers are facing attempted murder charges after police say they restrained and stabbed another teenage girl in a vehicle.
Police found an injured 16-year-old girl in distress around 11:30 a.m. Monday near Scott Collegiate on the 3300 block of 6th Avenue. She was taken to hospital in an ambulance for treatment.
Police said the victim got into a vehicle driven by a 16-year-old boy without knowing a 17-year-old girl was in the back seat behind her. The pair allegedly restrained her in the vehicle and stabbed her with a knife before she managed to escape.
The investigation led police to a house on Stewart Avenue in the Regent Park neighbourhood where they arrested both the 17-year-old girl and 16-year-old boy. Neither can be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. Both are charged jointly with attempted murder and forcible confinement and the girl is charged with uttering threats.
