LETHBRIDGE: Three men have been charged in connection with a attack in Galt Gardens early Sunday morning.

19-year old Tyler Mark Lawrence, also of Lethbridge, faces one count of aggravated assault and appeared in court Tuesday.
A 16-year old male, who can not be identified because of his age, was charged with aggravated assault and also made his first court appearance Tuesday.
