Police lay assault charge
A 30-year-old Scotchfort area male has been charged with assault with a weapon and damage to property in connection with an incident in Charlottetown early Saturday morning.
A spokesman for Charlottetown Police Services said the department was informed by the alleged victim that she had been assaulted and her vehicle damaged by another individual.
A policed investigation of that complaint resulted in the laying of these two charges.
The accused was jailed and will be appearing in provincial court at a later date.
No serious injuries were sustained.
