A 32-year-old man is charged with two counts of attempted murder in connection to the beating of a woman and her teenaged daughter in Winnipeg.

The 46-year-old woman and her 13-year-old daughter were assaulted in an apartment building in the 1500 block of Pembina Highway late Monday night.

A man known to the woman and girl went to their apartment suite and used a weapon to beat them, according to police, who said the victims were able to call 911.

The man, who was later arrested at his own residence, is also charged with breaking and entering, possessing a dangerous weapon and failing to comply with court conditions.
