Lethbridge police have charged a 41-year-old man in connection with an assault on the weekend.
At about 1 a.m. Saturday police responded to a report that blood had been found inside and outside an apartment building in the 3500 block of Sylvan Road South. A 51-year-old man suffering from head injuries and bleeding profusely was found inside one of the units. He was transported to hospital and treated for multiple facial fractures.
Police determined that earlier in the evening the victim had been involved in a verbal dispute with another person that escalated into a fight. The other man was later found at a city residence and arrested without incident.
Mitchell Jedidiah Chambers, 41, is charged with one count of assault causing bodily harm. Chambers was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 30.
