Prince George man arrested and charged with attempted murder in Edmonton

The Edmonton Police Service (EPS) has arrested and charged a 33-year-old Prince George man with attempted murder and aggravated assault (x4) in connection with violent machete assaults on four individuals in a northeast Edmonton residence. 

On Monday, Jul. 31, at approximately 4 a.m., Northeast Branch patrol officers responded to a disturbance call at a residence near 118 Avenue and 38 Street.

Upon arrival, police located two women and one man suffering from extensive, life-threatening injuries. Further investigation led officers to a second nearby residence where the attacks occurred.

While officers were assessing and providing urgent care to the three victims prior to the arrival of EMS, another male victim with a serious stab wound was discovered in a nearby vehicle.

While the machete assaults were not random, investigators believe they were unprovoked.

The suspect was soon identified, and on Wednesday, Aug. 2, 2023, police located and arrested Bobby-James Lavallee, 33, of Prince George, BC. He is facing charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault (x4), and breaches of conditions and probation.

Investigators are seeking the public’s assistance in locating the machete, which has not yet been recovered. The weapon is described as a “Kukri” style knife.
