Guelph police say a 42-year-old man is facing assault charges after a jogger was punched and spat on Wednesday night.
The alleged incident happened in the area of Speedvale Avenue and Stevenson Street at around 8:30 p.m.
According to a news release, the victim was running but stopped and turned around after a man yelled “come back here” at him.
The 38-year-old runner was then punched and spat on by the man, who then drove away.
Police said they later located the vehicle and arrested a suspect.
He has been charged with two counts of assault and will make a court appearance in November.
