A Prescott teeanger is facing an assault charge after another teen was injured last week.
Grenville County OPP say that an 18-year-old man was charged with assault with a weapon, after officers were called to a home last Tuesday. The victim, a 15-year-old girl, was taken to hospital for what police say are “minor injuries.”
The man was released from custody and given a court date in Brockville.
Police say the case is a reminder to seek help if you’re in an abusive relationship.
