Six people have been charged after a street fight in front of a Mill Woods home, including the father of slain teen Joshua Hunt and the 20-year-old acquitted of his murder.
Edmonton Police Service spokeswoman Karen Carlson said that on Friday evening the 20-year-old drove up to a home on 44B Avenue and 30 Street, where three teen boys were playing street hockey.
“One of the teenagers allegedly used a hockey stick to cause damage to the vehicle,” Carlson said. “Words were exchanged, and essentially, the disturbance began.”
The 20-year-old phoned his father, who rushed over to the home, allegedly brandishing a wooden club, Carlson said.
Amid the melee, police said Gary Hunt emerged from his home and allegedly became involved.
Neighbours called police, and when officers arrived those involved dropped their weapons, police said.
Gary Hunt, 47, is facing one count of assault and one count of uttering threats, while the 20-year-old man is charged with two counts of possessing a weapon and five counts of assault with a weapon.
Three teens and a 49-year-old man are also facing numerous charges.
