A 24-year-old Charlottetown man has been charged with assault following an incident early Sunday at a residence on Water Street.
Police say they initially responded to a disturbance complaint at the address in question.
Upon arrival they determined that a 23-year-old woman at that address had been assaulted. She sustained minor injuries in the incident.
The accused was charged and transported to the provincial correctional centre. He will appear in provincial court at a later date.
Police say the two parties are known to each other.
