Three different incidents have resulted in the Dauphin RCMP being extremely busy as of late.
Two people are in the hospital being treated for injuries after an assault on Monday morning in Dauphin.
At 5:35 a.m., RCMP received a report of an injured female and she was found with a severe knife wound at Tim Hortons. A second victim, an adult male, was also located.
Prior to them being at Tim Hortons, the victims were in a grey truck, owned by the male, in the area of Cemetery Road when they were assaulted by three suspects. The suspects left the victims on Cemetery Road and fled the area in the grey truck, which has since been recovered.
If you have any information, you're asked to call the RCMP at 204-622-5050.
On March 11 at about 4:45 a.m., the RCMP responded to a report of a male that was suffering from a gunshot wound. He was located at the hospital being treated for non-life-threatening injuries and a 22-year-old female was arrested.
An investigation determined the victim was travelling in a vehicle with two others when a shotgun was discharged and struck the male in the leg. The 22-year-old faces a charge of discharging a firearm while being reckless. She has been released from custody and she will appear in Dauphin Provincial Court on May 16.
Then on March 12 at about 10:40 p.m., the RCMP responded to a report of an assault with a weapon. A 30-year-old female was walking in the area near Memorial Boulevard in Dauphin when she was assaulted by another 30-year-old female. The accused struck the victim with a hammer that had a large screw attached to it. The victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries and she was transported to the hospital for treatment.
The accused was located a short distance away and she has been charged with aggravated assault and assault with a weapon and she remains in custody while she awaits a court date.
Both females are known to each other and it does appear to be a targeted attack.
