Just before 5:15 p.m. on July 3, 2024, officers were dispatched to an Unknown Trouble on Elm Street. Information provided was that an individual could be heard yelling for someone to call police from inside a residential unit.

Officers arrived on scene and located an individual outside the residence who was believed to be involved in the incident. Officers made entry into the unit to ensure the safety of those who might be inside. Upon entering the unit, officers located a 59-year-old, man who had sustained serious, life-threatening injuries from what is believed to be a blunt object. The man was transported to hospital by Greater Sudbury Paramedic Services and remains in critical condition.

Based on the investigation, officers believed that the individual located outside the residence was responsible for the attack and quickly placed the individual under arrest. The 33-year-old, man has been charged with Attempt to Commit Murder and Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose. The individual was held in police custody overnight and will attend Bail Court today, July 4, 2024, to answer to the charges. The individual’s name cannot be released at this time as the information has not yet been sworn to through the court process.

This is a targeted incident as the individuals involved are known to each other.

Officers will be present on scene on Elm Street throughout the day as Detectives from the Major Crime Section of our Criminal Investigation Division have applied for a search warrant for the residential unit.
