The accused, who cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault.

The incident was not random, police said.

The two victims fled to a nearby home for help after the alleged assault.

The accused was scheduled to appear in La Ronge Provincial Court on Thursday morning.
