SASKATOON – Two brothers charged in violent attack last year in Saskatoon were back in court on Thursday. Darren and Darcy Hinds are charged with two counts each of aggravated assault following the Nov. 28 beating in the Sutherland neighbourhood.

Darren Hinds is also charged with uttering threats to cause death.

The attack left two people with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

Police originally attended the stretch of Central Avenue the night the fight broke out. It wasn’t until a cell phone video of the attack surfaced on social media a week later that Saskatoon police launched an investigation and eventually charged the brothers.

At their first court appearance, they were released on $1,000 bail and allowed to return home to Spruce Grove, Alta. after a judge determined they didn’t pose a risk to the public.

In provincial court on Thursday, their curfews were amended to allow them to go on a previously planned vacation in early March.

They will be back in court on Feb. 25.
