"horrific" sex assault on boy

A male youth remains in a northern BC hospital and six people, including two females, are in custody in what police are calling a case of aggravated sexual assault.

RCMP Cpl. Craig Douglass says senior officers with more than 20 years experience are describing it as one of the worst  cases they have seen involving youth.

He says police in Prince George received a tip on Monday and found the male youth unconscious and in a snowbank behind an apartment building.

The youth was taken to hospital, and authorities determined he was the victim of aggravated assault and aggravated sexual assault.

Douglass says police believe the male youth was lured to an apartment, but are providing few other details.

Douglass says an 18-year-old male, a 20-year-old female, three male youths and one female youth remain in custody, but he doesn't know when charges will be laid.

The victim is in serious, but stable condition in hospital.
