Sergeant Steve Perret told Energeticcity.ca last week that officers had been searching for Toth for the past few weeks and believed he was resisting arrest, but was still in the Fort St. John area.

He is one of five people who have been charged with criminal code offences in connection with the incident on July 25.  Each is charged with 40 offences, ranging from uttering threats to pointing a firearm and using a firearm in the commission of an offence.

The charges stem from the incident that took place during a party off the 103 Road where several teenagers and young adults were drinking.

Police say they believe one person left the party and returned with armed friends.

They say many people were hurt as a result of being struck by different weapons, including baseball bats, 2x4s and batons.

Toth will be held in custody until his next court appearance.
