Owen Sound Police searching for assault suspect

Owen Sound Police are looking for a suspect wanted for an assault that left one person with major injuries.

Police say the victim and the accused got into an altercation on August 20th that turned physical. Bystanders separated the two and both left the area.

Two days later, the suspect and victim crossed paths again along the east harbour wall. The victim was hit repeatedly with his own skateboard and taken to hospital with major injuries.

It wasn’t until later that police were notified.

They’ve identified a 35-year-old suspect and are seeking a warrant for his arrest. He’s facing charges of assault, assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, and failing to comply with probation.
