Man hospitalized after altercation in Charlottetown
Two Charlottetown residents are facing charges of assault causing bodily harm after an altercation early Sunday morning sent one man to hospital with serious injuries.
Police said they were called to a disturbance on Kent Street near Prince Street around 2:30 a.m.
Officers later arrested a 20-year-old man in front of the Pizza Brothers restaurant. They also arrested a 20-year-old female and both have since been released.
Police said the 23-year-old hospitalized man has been released from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
The case is still under investigation.
"There was a lot of people in the area at the time. There was a large group of people. They're still conducting interviews and whatnot from witnesses, so it's probably going to be a little while before they get that all cleared up," said Charlottetown Police Sgt. Shane Carr.
The two accused will appear in court in late February.
