Local police said on Friday they have charged an Ottawa man with robbery, assault and uttering death threats in connection with an alleged assault in the city’s south end earlier this month.

Ottawa police officers responded to a call about an assault in the 700 block of Bernard Street, south of Hunt Club Road, at around 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 7. There, they found a badly injured man, whom paramedics transported to hospital.

A media release from police didn’t note the injured man’s age or current medical condition, or whether he knows Mundy.

A spokesperson for the Ottawa Police Service said she was unable to provide further details because an investigator in the case was not available on Friday afternoon.

The release said Mundy is currently in jail and is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 17.
