Regina Police have charged two boys with attempted murder in connection with an assault that took place earlier this week.
While officers were responding to a separate call around 3:30 a.m. Thursday morning they came across a group of people gathered around a 16-year-old boy who was the victim of an assault on the 2800 block of 6th Avenue.
While responding to a suspicious person call, officers discovered the suspect matched one of the descriptions of the attempted murder case; the 16-year-old boy was arrested at a residence on the 1100 block of Rae Street.
The second suspect, a 17-year-old boy was arrested a short time later with the help of a canine unit.
It was at that time a police dog came into contact with someone unrelated to the case and bit them, police say that is also under investigation.
The two suspects made their first court appearances Friday afternoon.
