Man as­saulted with wrench

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

A Sum­mer­side man is in po­lice cus­tody and has been charged with as­sault af­ter he al­legedly at­tacked an­other man with a wrench ear­lier this week.

On Mon­day, shortly af­ter 10 a.m., Sum­mer­side Po­lice Ser­vices re­ceived a re­port that a man had just been as­saulted in the down­town area of the city.

Po­lice re­sponded im­me­di­ately and lo­cated an in­jured man who told po­lice he had just been as­saulted by an­other man with a me­tal ob­ject. The in­jured man was bleed­ing from his head area and was trans­ported to hospi­tal by am­bu­lance.

Within a cou­ple of hours, po­lice lo­cated and ar­rested the sus­pect, and he has been charged with pos­ses­sion of a weapon for a dan­ger­ous pur­pose and as­sault with a weapon. The weapon al­leged to have been used in the com­mis­sion of this of­fence was a wrench, which was re­cov­ered by po­lice when the sus­pect was ar­rested.

The vic­tim was treated in hospi­tal for the in­jury sus­tained to his head and he has been re­leased.

It ap­pears that the two men knew each other, but it is not known what sparked this in­ci­dent.

The sus­pect, a 25-year-old Sum­mer­side man, re­mains in cus­tody and faces a court date on Aug. 15.
