Officers attacked

RCMP officers were attacked by a group of males early Saturday morning while responding to a complaint of a fight.

At approximately 4:19 a.m. while responding to a reported fight at 605 Carson Drive, police attended an apartment the assailants were observed to have run into at that location.

Upon entering the Carson Drive apartment police were confronted by a group of violent males, who immediately attempted to assault and disarm the attending police officers.

After a significant altercation between police and the perpetrators, three males were taken into custody and are being held for court appearances on charges related to the altercation, including assaulting a police officer and obstruction.
