FORT MCMURRAY (660 NEWS) – Two Fort McMurray men have been charged in connection to a stabbing in the city’s downtown earlier this month.

At approximately 7:45 p.m. on April 9, Wood Buffalo RCMP responded to the area of Franklin Avenue and Alberta Drive.

A 20-year-old man was treated on scene for a minor injury that RCMP say he received after getting into an altercation with another man.

According to a press release, the 20-year-old was arrested and charged with assault with a weapon and causing a disturbance. His name has not been released as charges have not yet been sworn in court.

RCMP say the young man was released from custody and is due in Fort McMurray Provincial Court on May 26.

The investigation led to the arrest of 30-year-old Robin Lee Conrad Grandjambe on April 14. He’s been charged with assault causing bodily harm, causing a disturbance, and two weapons offences.

Grandjambe was released from custody pending a court appearance on May 12.

RCMP say they believe this was an isolated and targeted incident.
