A 17-year-old has been charged and one suspect is wanted following a violent assault on two other men in Beaverton that caused serious injuries.

The attack occurred last Saturday on Moorlands Drive in Beaverton, Durham Region’s most northerly community.

Police say several young men were on the scene at approximately 11 p.m. for a “consensual” fight when two people produced weapons. One victim received serious injuries as a result of being slashed with a knife and struck with a metal pole.

A video emerged of the attack and officers were able to identify the armed suspects.

A 17-year old from Brock Township has been charged with three counts of Aggravated Assault, three counts of Uttering Threats, two counts of Assault with a Weapon and two counts of Possession of Weapons Dangerous to the Public Peace.

Police continue to search for the second suspect.
