Ridge Meadows RCMP have arrested two 20 year old Maple Ridge men in relation to the aggravated assault in Pitt Meadows, Sunday morning on 20 year old Langley resident Cole Shannon.

“The investigation has resulted in the arrests of two individuals  who police believe are responsible  for the serious assault,” said Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. Brenda Winpenny. “The victim’s condition has improved, and it now appears his injuries are felt to be non-life threatening.”

However, she said, “he remains in hospital and it is unknown if there will be any long lasting injury as a result of the incident.”

The two suspects were arrested on Wednesday “and were released on conditions by a justice.”

The pair are due for a first court appearance later this month.
