Warrant issued in assault trial

An arrest warrant has been issued for a Lethbridge man who was expected to enter pleas in relation to a violent attack a year ago.
Hunter Ferdinand Nolte, 35, was supposed to enter pleas Monday in Lethbridge provincial court, and elect how he wants to be tried, either by a judge and jury or judge alone. But when he didn’t show up for court and his lawyer said she has no idea where he is, a warrant was issued.
“He has not spoken to me since he was in custody,” Lethbridge lawyer Ingrid Hess said.
Hess said she has called the homeless shelter and left several messages for her client but has not heard from him, and his mother hasn’t heard from him for more than two weeks.
Nolte is one of several individuals charged following a violent attack at a westside residence Sept. 25, 2020. Police were called to an early-morning disturbance at a trailer park in the 2700 block of Westside Drive West, and found a 40-year-old man suffering from serious, life-threatening injuries. Nolte was charged with aggravated assault and disguised with intent.
Police said the incident was targeted, and the victim and suspects were known to each other.
