Prince George, B.C. – The Prince George RCMP Serious Crime Unit investigation of a double aggravated assault case has now turned into a homicide investigation after one of the victims died in hospital of injuries sustained during the attack.

At approximately 1:40 am Saturday police were called to a report of a disturbance near the corner of Oak Street and Porter Avenue.  Responding officers found two people suffering serious injuries from an apparent Assault.  The adult male and adult female victims were transported to hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.  An adult male suspect was located and arrested near the scene.

The male victim has now died as a result of injuries sustained in the  attack.  The female victim is expected to survive.
