SASKATOON – A man charged in connection to a serious assault in Rosetown in November has been released from custody. Corey Rushkewich, 33, was granted bail after a show cause hearing in Saskatoon Provincial Court Dec. 1.

He was released on strict conditions including wearing an ankle bracelet for electronic monitoring. He is scheduled back in court on Dec. 21 to enter an election.

His brother, Randy Rushkewich, 29, remains in custody and has a show cause hearing on Friday in Saskatoon Provincial Court.

The police investigation determined there was an altercation between a group of individuals in the 1st Street West area. A man stole a cellphone from a woman and pointed a firearm at them during the incident.

A male victim was assaulted and is now being treated in hospital for serious injuries.

The two brothers are each charged with aggravated assault. Corey Rushkewich is also charged with three counts, pointing a firearm and robbery.
