EDMONTON – Two men who know each other have been charged after a fight downtown Edmonton on Tuesday night where a beer bottle was used as a weapon.

Police say they were approached by a 43-year-old man outside of EPS Headquarters at 10 p.m. on Tuesday.  Another man, a 42-year-old, approaches a passing police car in the area of 97 Street and 107 Avenue.

Both men said they had recently been assaulted.

They were both suffering non-life-threatening injuries and were treated and then transported to hospital.

The Edmonton Police Service (EPS) says neither one was cooperative with police.

The incident took place in the area of the Mustard Seed Church at 96 Street and 106 A Avenue.

The 43-year-old man has been charged with aggravated assault and possession of a dangerous weapon, and remains in police custody.

The 42-year-old man is charged with breach of recognizance, and has been released.
