The younger teen fled the home after the assault and was taken to hospital by a parent.

This alleged attack led police to execute a search warrant at the home of the accused. Police say during the search they found bagged marijuana, digital scales, knives and .22-calibre bullets.

Because the accused was not at home at the time of the search, a warrant for his arrest was issued.
