A man from Leduc County has been charged with attempted murder after a weekend incident in Grande Prairie.
RCMP and EMS were called to a home on the city’s east side early Sunday morning.
They found a man with injuries from what looks to be a hatchet attack outside the home. The man was taken to hospital with what police call “significant trauma”, but he has been released and is expected to recover.
Thirty-eight-year old Ronald Ernest Gauthier was arrested and charged a short time later. He was due in Grande Prairie court Monday.
RCMP believe this was an isolated incident and there is no risk to the public
