Bail denied for youth arrested in brawl
A judge has denied bail to a 17-year-old male arrested in a brawl allegedly sparked by a 2009 homicide.
The youth applied for bail Friday before Judge Michel Chartier. He was arrested April 17 following a brawl outside a Sargent Avenue restaurant.
The youth is accused of stabbing a 19-year-old man in the stomach, sending him to hospital in critical condition.
The Crown alleges the accused was among a group of seven teens who attacked three men they believed had been involved in the killing of 17-year-old Frank (Frankie) Green Jr.
Green was found dead in St. Boniface Cemetery on Sept. 12, 2009. He was severely beaten and suffered injuries all over his body.
Police recently arrested five male teens and charged them with second-degree murder.
