Orillia man arrested for attempted murder

An Orillia man has been arrested following a serious assault in Ramara Township over the summer.

According to the OPP, 20-year-old Jake Marcellus was arrested without incident and charged with attempted murder and uttering threats on Friday (Sept. 27).

The charges were laid after officers responded to a call on July 29 where they reportedly found a 23-year-old Ramara badly injured at a Logan Lane residence.

Police say that paramedics were tending to the victim, who was airlifted to a Toronto area hospital in critical condition.

A warrant for Marcellus was issued following an investigation into the incident.

He is being held in custody pending a hearing in Orillia court Saturday.
