Battlefords RCMP have charged two men with eight offences after pointing a gun at a victim on Saulteaux First Nation.
On Saturday, RCMP were called to the First Nation, where the alleged incident took place. The suspects pointing the firearm ran away in a vehicle shortly after. The police say no shots were fired and no one was injured. The vehicle of the suspects was found entering North Battleford, where police conducted a vehicle stop and arrested two women who were later released without charges.
The two men were found and arrested in a field west of North Battleford after a rural search. A .22 calibre rifle was also found near the area of arrest.
The 26-year old and 23-year old have been charged with eight offences each, including Pointing a Firearm, Assault with a Weapon, Unauthorized Possession of a Weapon and Careless Use of a Firearm.
Both men made an appearance in North Battleford Provincial Court on Monday morning.
