Steinbach RCMP received a report of a violent assault that occurred at a residence located on Principale Street in La Broquerie on Friday, October 6 at approximately 11:15pm.

Officers attended and located a 33-year-old male, from Winnipeg, with life-threatening-injuries who was transported to hospital in critical condition, later upgraded to stable, where he remains.

Investigators were advised that the victim, along with a 30-year-old female, were approached by two males known to them. A physical altercation ensued and the victim was attacked by the two males and struck with a wooden club. The two suspects then fled the scene.

The investigation led to the October 8 arrest of 30-year-old Braden Churly and 33-year-old Dylan Churly, both from La Broquerie, who have been charged with Aggravated Assault and released for a court appearance scheduled for December 7 in Steinbach.

Steinbach RCMP, along with assistance from RCMP Major Crime Services, continue to investigate.
