Crown counsel has approved 18 more charges against seven suspects in the Stanley Cup riot last June, including two Burnaby youth.

Two 16-year-old Burnaby residents, a boy and a girl, have each been charged with participating in a riot and mischief. As suspected young offenders, their names are being withheld.

Crown has now approved a total of 171 criminal charges against 64 suspected rioters.

Meanwhile, the Integrated Riot Investigation Team (IRIT) continues to recommend charges against suspects, including a 24-year-old man from Burnaby. The man is accused of being involved in the attack on Good Samaritan Robert Mackay, allegedly punching him from behind and kicking him as he lay on the ground.

The Burnaby suspect faces charges for participating in a riot and assault. He has no criminal record and turned himself into police after seeing his picture on the riot website.

To date, the IRIT has recommended 432 criminal charges against 150 suspected rioters.
