20-year-old Brandon Tobin, who was accused of a vicious assault in St. John's late last month, has now been charged with attempted murder.
Tobin was charged with aggravated assault and two counts of assault with a weapon, following an incident on Keegan Court.
The weapon was identified as a baseball bat.
One of the victims was treated in a St. John's hospital for what police described as serious injuries.
In court on Wednesday morning, Tobin was charged with attempting to murder that man.
The second victim was not seriously hurt in the altercation.
Tobin will return to court next week for a bail hearing.
