A Red Deer man and a Camrose youth are facing attempted murder charges following a machete attack at a house party that left three people injured one seriously.

It is the second machete attack in the City in the past week

At about 4:10 a.m. on Sept. 4 a Red Deer city RCMP officer was flagged down by a group of people advising that a person had been assaulted with machetes.

The officer found a 22-yearold male from Rocky Mountain House suffering from serious injuries.

An ambulance was called and the man was taken to Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.

RCMP said the victim was involved in an altercation with two other men while at a house party on the 6300 block of 58 Ave. Two other people received minor injuries. Both attended the

hospital and were treated and released.

Police said two suspects had departed prior to police arrival. One of the suspects was located a short distance away by another police officer and the second suspect turned himself in to police. Alcohol was a factor in this incident, said RCMP.

Dylan Huhn, 20, of Red Deer has been charged with one count of attempted murder, one count of aggravated assault, two counts of assault with a weapon, one count of possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace and two counts of fail to comply with a court order.

Huhn was remanded in custody and was scheduled to appear in Red Deer provincial court on

Sept. 7.

A 17-year-old Camrose male, who can not be named because of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, has been charged with one count of attempted murder, one count of possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace, one count of aggravated assault and one count of assault with a weapon.

The youth was remanded in custody and was scheduled to appear in Red Deer provincial court on Sept. 7.

Meanwhile, on Aug. 31, a Red Deer city RCMP officer was on routine patrol in the area of the 5300 block of Gaetz Ave. when he stopped to talk to an individual.

A man was then observed running towards the policeman. As the man approached the officer “he uttered his dismay” at seeing the Mountie. He then turned and ran in another direction.

A moment later another male came up with a machete in his hand and told the Mountie he had just been assaulted with the weapons by the fleeing male.

The 53-year-old victim suffered minor injuries as a result of the assault. The 17-year-old suspect was identified but not located. Police are currently looking for the male, who can not be identified under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act. The youth faces charges of assault with a weapon.
