Four inmates from the Edmonton Institution have been charged following two separate altercations at the facility in late December.
At around 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 28, police were called to the maximum-security prison in north Edmonton after receiving a report of an altercation with a weapon. A 49-year-old inmate was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Grant Hoeft, 26, and Lenny Tecomba, 20, were charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon.
Less than two hours later, police were once again called to the Edmonton Institution for an altercation involving a weapon which sent a 30-year-old man to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Bradley Dustyhorn, 22 and Kody Bear, 26, were charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon.
It’s not known if the two incidents are connected.
