She was released on conditions including 24-hour house arrest, not be within five kilometres of La Ronge, not possess any weapons and to report to a youth worker.

The La Ronge RCMP General Investigation Section arrested the girl on June 2 in relation to an investigation into the assault on two children on May 29 in a wooded area near the 400 block of Bells Point Road in La Ronge.

Police say the incident wasn’t random.

The youth is scheduled back in court later this month to enter a plea.
