A young man has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated sexual assault and kidnapping in the attack of a girl, 6, on Paul First Nation in Alberta Saturday.
The RCMP charged James Clifford Paul, 21, Monday after the little girl was reportedly found naked and in the snow by family members Saturday.
Police said Paul was arrested without incident and within a day. He is known to police.
The victim had been tobogganing when she reportedly went home to change her wet clothes. It was around then that she was attacked.
Paul knows the victims, police said.
The victim hasn’t regained consciousness and police said she is stable, but in serious condition.
For a bit it was a “life or death” situation, police said.
The family, through a band statement, has asked for privacy.
