Charges stayed on aggravated assault
Charges have been stayed against two of the three men charged in the aggravated assault of a teen, following a preliminary inquiry.
Malcolm Quincy Powery, 24, and Calvin Junior Powery-Hooker, 18 had the charges against them stayed in a St. Albert courtroom on Monday.
Boakai Abu Dukuly, 19, will stand trial for charges of aggravated assault, robbery and forcible confinement.
All three men are residents of Edmonton.
Police said that a 17-year-old male, who cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, allegedly went to meet the men and entered their vehicle for a drug deal.
The three first faced charges after police said a teen was assaulted, receiving injuries to his side, face and head. He required surgery and a stay at the hospital.
The boy also had his property stolen and was left wandering through the Akinsdale neighbourhood without shoes or socks.
A trial date has not been set for Dukuly.
Duo faces trafficking charges
A St. Albert duo who are facing trafficking charges have put their matters over.
Vincent Zyp, 27 and Anastasiya Bilovodska, 21, appeared in court on Monday morning and put their matters over until Feb. 12. They have not entered a plea or election. The two were charged with trafficking after a search warrant was conducted in Edmonton.
The St. Albert man is facing 35 Criminal Code charges while the St. Albert woman is facing 27 charges after an extensive drug investigation by the local RCMP.
A search warrant conducted by the St. Albert RCMP netted a variety of drugs including cocaine, GHB, LSD, MDMA, Dexedrine capsules, Xanax tablets, psilocybin, cannabis marijuana and hashish.
The St. Albert RCMP also seized money, suspected to be from the proceeds of a crime; and a 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan.
Zyp is charged with three counts of trafficking a controlled substance, one count of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and four counts of possession of proceeds of crime under $5000.
Along with the individual charges against Zyp, he is facing another 27 joint charges with Bilovodska. The two are facing an additional 15 counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, 11 counts of possession of a controlled substance and a single count of possession of proceeds of crime over $5,000.
