Guelph police lay charges for bat attack, update how it happened

Charges laid, and a twist in the tale of a baseball bat attack in Guelph.

Police in the Royal City were called out to a home on Elizabeth Street near Huron Street, near the downtown, around 9 a.m. back on March 23.

Officers were told a resident spotted two men lurking around his vehicle and when he went outside, they attacked him with a bat, and he had to crawl back into his home to get help from his teenaged son.

However, police have since said the victim was asleep that Saturday morning when two men came into his home and beat him with the bat.

The son woke up and tried to intervene, but one of the suspects brandished a knife toward him.

In the end, the victim had two broken arms and a leg fracture, and needed several surgeries.

Police said they found one of the two suspects Friday morning, and arrested the 40-year-old Guelph man.

He’s now facing charges of assault with a weapon, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and being unlawfully in a dwelling.
