My client’s cousins were attacked and stabbed by a couple of other guys from their reserve, so he and a few members of his family (including his brother and his father) found them and got revenge. They broke into their house with weapons. One guy had a baseball bat in one hand and a knife in the other, threatened to kill them, and slashed one guy’s arm. My client swung a steel pipe around and broke one guy’s arm with it. Another struck another guy in the head with a golf club. They fought back and fists were thrown before my client and his family left. The guys they attacked suffered numerous injuries, requiring medical attention.
On the day of trial, the Crown agreed to withdraw all charges and to resolve with a Peace Bond.
