Suspects are being questioned in relation to five serious assaults in Prince Albert yesterday that are believed to be gang-related.


Police inspector Howard Georgeson says the department’s top officers are working with the combined special forces unit to determine what happened at a house on the West Flat.


It was early yesterday morning when a large group of individuals forced their way into the home, where three men and two women were assaulted.


All of the victims are in their early twenties and were taken to hospital with various injuries.


Georgeson says at least one of the male victims is in critical condition.


He adds there’s no doubt this house was specifically targeted, and officers are working around the clock to find those responsible.
