N.B. Review Board: Man who attacked people in Fredericton with machete allowed to remain in public

The New Brunswick Review Board has ruled the man who attacked three people with a machete at a Fredericton college in 2014 will be allowed to remain in public.

CBC reporting 36 year old Luke Powers  moved to Moncton late last year after receiving a conditional release from the Restigouche Hospital Centre in Campbellton following a lengthy hospital stay.

The review board decided against the Crown's suggestion that Powers not receive a discharge, but it said he remains a "significant threat" and "further monitoring is required."

Three people at Eastern College, one instructor and two students, were hospitalized with injuries ranging from minor to serious after Powers attacked them with a 43-centimetre machete-style knife.
