A 60 year-old Regina male has been charged with Aggravated Assault after investigation into an incident yesterday (Tuesday) evening.
On Tuesday, September 27, 2022, at approximately 6:50 p.m., police were dispatched to the 1700 block of Ottawa Street after receiving a report of an adult male, who was unconscious on the ground, after having been assaulted. The events leading up to the assault are still unclear, but preliminary information indicates an adult male suspect allegedly punched the 61 year-old victim in the head and body, then struck him numerous times with a gardening tool, before walking away. The victim sustained serious injuries and was transported to hospital by EMS. Police located a male matching the description of the suspect nearby and arrested him without incident. Further investigation led to charges.
Sixty year-old Robert David BROOKS, of Regina, is charged with:
- Aggravated Assault, s. 268(1) CC; and
- Breach of Probation, s. 733.1(1) CC.
BROOKS made his first court appearance on these charges in Provincial Court at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday (today), September 28, 2022.
