Man, 61, dies after assault, suspect in custody: Prince Albert police

The Prince Albert Police Service says a 61-year-old man has died from his injuries after being assaulted on Sunday.

A 20-year-old man is in custody.

Police say victim was found around 12:30 p.m. CST that day on the 200 block of 9th St. E. in Prince Albert. 

The man was "suffering from serious life-threatening injuries and missing some of his personal belongings," according to a news release sent out earlier this week.

The 20-year-old suspect was arrested and originally charged with aggravated assault and robbery. He appeared in provincial court on Tuesday.

Prince Albert police said in a Friday news release that his charges will be amended and upgraded.

They are not searching for additional suspects.
