A 22-year-old Summerside man has been charged with aggravated assault in connection with an incident this past Tuesday in Miscouche that sent one man to hospital with serious injuries.
East Prince RCMP and the PEI RCMP Major Crime Unit began an investigation after being notified by a member of the victim’s family Tuesday afternoon that an assault had occurred early Tuesday morning.
The investigation determined that two men were fighting in the parking lot of the Miscouche Legion. The circumstances leading up the fight are still under investigation. The suspect in the investigation was arrested in Summerside by Summerside City Police approximately two hours after RCMP received the complaint.
22-year-old Brandon Butler of Summerside has been charged with aggravated assault. He has been remanded in custody until his next court appearance scheduled for later this month in Summerside.
The investigation is ongoing.
