A 13-year-old boy has been charged with assault with a weapon after an incident at Moskahiken Cree Nation Sunday evening, in which a girl 9, was allegedly assaulted.
Manitoba RCMP said the girl was outside a Kistigan Crescent home with friends when she was approached by the suspect, who was in possession of what police believe to be a machete.
The girl didn’t need medical attention, police said, and the suspect was located and arrested the next day.
Moose Lake RCMP continue to investigate.
