Two people have now been charged after a reported machete attack in Prince Albert earlier this week.

Police say a 53-year-old man was attacked with a machete at an apartment building in the 100 Block of 11th Street West just after midnight on Monday morning.

The man was taken to hospital with injuries to his hands and head.

Shortly after the alleged attack, police arrested a 16-year-old who was charged with aggravated assault.

Upon further investigation, police now say 34-year-old Gerald Aaron Bear also faces a charge of aggravated assault related to the incident.
