Lethbridge Police have charged a 21-year-old man in connection with an incident where a male was assaulted outside a westside home over the weekend.
On Sunday at approximately 11 p.m. police responded to Chinook Regional Hospital after staff reported a male had been dropped off at the ER with serious head injuries. The 26-year-old victim was subsequently transferred to a Calgary hospital where he remains in serious but stable condition.
Investigation determined the victim and a group of acquaintances had been socializing throughout the day, and later in the evening returned to a home along the 100 block of Mount Blakiston Road West where a verbal altercation escalated to a physical assault. The victim was subsequently struck in the head with a weapon causing significant injuries, police said in a release. Through followup investigation the subject was identified but has not yet been located.
