A Hamilton man is facing aggravated assault charges after a violent fight at a home along the beach strip.
Hamilton Police were called to Joseph Brant Hospital in Burlington shortly before 11:30 a.m. on Saturday after they received a report that a male patient was admitted with serious but non-life-threatening injuries from an assault.
Police say their investigation led them to discover that his injuries stemmed from a fight that happened between two men who knew each other at a home on Beach Boulevard late Friday.
The victim suffered serious injuries to his face and head and remains in hospital.
On Sunday morning, a 33-year-old Hamilton man was arrested and charged with aggravated assault.
