Three people arrested in brazen attack on Hamilton Mountain

Two adults and a youth have been charged in connection with a brazen attack on a good Samaritan last month.

Police say on Dec. 20, a man saw three people breaking into cars in the area of Mohawk Rd. and Toby Crescent around 12:15 a.m.

The man, believed to be in his thirties, followed the trio onto Toby Crescent where he confronted them.

A struggle ensued and the man was stabbed and cut on his head. The man ran to a nearby home to try and get help. He then went across the street to another home where the residents heard his screams and found him lying on their front porch. He was rushed to hospital and has since recovered from his injuries.

Hamilton police have charged Daniel MacKenzie, 22, Tarra Farrell, 24, and a 13-year-old boy with two counts each of aggravated assault. MacKenzie and Farrell are also charged with breach of probation.

Police are reminding citizens to call 911 when you see a crime in progress because confronting suspects can escalate quickly and put innocent people at risk.
