Manitoba RCMP charged a third individual in an attempted murder investigation related to a 2020 incident in West St. Paul.

A 44-year-old man, who was already in custody at Milner Ridge Correctional Centre, was charged Friday with attempted murder, kidnapping, aggravated assault and forcible confinement, police said.

The charges are connected with an incident in May 2020, which RCMP said involved a 32-year-old woman who was seriously assaulted and left in a ditch.

Two women were arrested around the time the victim was discovered, and charged with similar offences, as well as sexual assault.

Police said the victim had been assaulted in Winnipeg, driven outside the city — where she continued to be assaulted — and left in the ditch. She was able to get to a nearby home for help and was taken to hospital.
