21 Year-Old Man Charged With Aggravated Assault; 2 People Taken To HSN With Injuries


Just before 11:30 p.m. on Friday, January 8, 2021, Officers responded to an Assault at a residence in Greater Sudbury after information was provided that the home owner had two individuals subdued awaiting Police and Paramedic Services were requested for multiple individuals within the residence. In order to protect the identities of the victims, the location of the incident will not be released.

While the two men were struggling, a youth within the home attempted to assist the home owner and he was hit in the head with a glass bottle causing a wound that required medical attention. The young man then used the broken bottle to strike the home owner in the face causing a wound that also required medical attention. While the home owner and the young man continued to struggle, a 20 year old young woman began to kick the home owner. The home owner eventually managed to hold down both individuals until Police arrived. 
The home owner, a 44 year old man and the youth were transported to hospital by Paramedics where they were treated for minor injuries. The teenage girl that was originally assaulted was assessed on scene, but did not require further medical attention.
