On June 17, 2021, at approximately 11:30 p.m., officers responded to a 9-1-1 call to report two seriously injured 18-year-old men on the Main Street Bridge in Wasaga Beach. Simcoe County paramedics transported the two victims to the local hospital and one was then airlifted by Ornge to a Toronto area trauma center.

The initial police investigation revealed that an altercation had taken place between the victims and the suspect, in which the two victims were stabbed.

On June 24, 2021, members of the Huronia West OPP Crime Unit, with assistance from the South Georgian Bay Crime Unit, executed a search warrant at a residence of Wasaga Beach and arrested the suspect.

As a result, a 15-year-old man from Wasaga Beach was charged with:

  • Attempted murder – two counts
  • Possession of weapon for dangerous purposes
  • Flight
  • Failure to comply with probation order

The accused is being held for a bail hearing in the Ontario Court of Justice in Collingwood, scheduled for later today.

Anyone with information about this crime, or any suspicious or illegal activity, is asked to call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or https: // ontariocrimestoppers .California /.

A general provision of the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) prohibits the disclosure of a young person’s name and, therefore, the identity of the young person involved in this investigation will be withheld.
