The courtroom confessions of two Regina women have shed some light on a horrific case of child abuse.
In provincial court Monday, the pair admitted to beating two little girls with a hammer, a frying pan, an extension cord, and a high-heeled shoe. They also admitted to sexual assault, and to making child pornography.
This all happened between January 1 and 18 on the 1600 block of 12th Avenue. The group all lived in the same house.
The young canine who was found, rescued, and cared for by Regina police officers now has a home with one of them.
On Thanksgiving weekend, Cst. Cory Longhurst found the dog in an alley behind the 1600 block of Toronto St. "Copper", as he was later named, was bleeding; his back leg cut down to the bone.
Copper was rushed to a 24-hour vet clinic on Victoria Ave. Without an owner, nobody could be called upon to pay for treatment. Without payment, Copper would be put down.
Police believe the man found in the middle of an alley last week is one of two assault victims.
The man found is 20 years old from Saskatoon. He was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries. Saskatoon police say his condition has improved slightly.
Police have identified a second victim, a 21-year-old man from the Saskatoon area who was not found at the scene.
The 20-year-old man was found on Friday in the 1600 block of 19th Street West. Police don’t have any suspects at this time.
Police are reporting that a 40-year-old man is facing a charge of luring a child.
David Andrew Hubbard was arrested Friday after an investigation by Saskatchewan`s Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE).
He is alleged to have used the Internet to set up a meeting with a 15-year-old girl for sexual purposes.
Police report that he was caught after he tried to run away when officers showed up at the meeting spot.
Hubbard was previously convicted of luring and possessing child pornography back in 2008.
Saskatoon police are looking for two men after an armed robbery Monday afternoon.
Police were called to a convenience store in the 2400 block of Richardson Road around 12:10 p.m.
Employees told police that the two men were wearing masks and demanded cash and cigarettes. Police believe at least one of the men was armed with a knife.
The men ran away and a canine team is trying to track them down.

A pair of moose wandered into Saskatoon today.
Traffic around the 100 block of Weyakwin Drive was briefly closed Monday morning as officers, along with officials from Saskatchewan Environment and Rescource Management tranquilized and transported the animal out of the city. The street has since reopened.
After a manhunt that lasted almost two weeks across Western Canada we now know where Michael Stanley is calling home.
A Saskatoon man faces charges related to a rash of robberies starting in 2012 after a foot chase with police over the weekend.
Last fall a service station was robbed four times from September until the end of December. Each time the suspect would cover his face and use a knife to demand the cash. He usually would get away with around $400.
RCMP are reporting that one person is dead following a three vehicle collision.
