In December of 2013, two males wearing bandanas over their face entered the Beattie St  residence where they stabbed two other male victims multiple times. 

When the attackers fled the residence they encountered two more males, whom they also stabbed.

The suspects then fled the area but were arrested a short time later. Two young offenders were charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, forcible entry, disguise with intent to commit an indictable offence, and four counts of aggravated assault.
