THUNDER BAY, Ont. — Police in Thunder Bay, Ont., say two teenagers are in custody after a break-in and assault that left one person with life-threatening injuries.

Officers were en route to a break and enter call at a home on the city’s south side early Thursday when they spotted footprints in the snow.

The force says the officers followed the tracks and located two male suspects, aged 14 and 19.

Further investigation led them to discover that a male had been assaulted at an address on Syndicate Avenue North.

He was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries, and the case was handed over to the force’s major crimes unit.

The two accused were due in court on Thursday on a charge of aggravated assault.
