RCMP have charged an Airdrie man with aggravated assault after an almost three-month-long investigation into the severe injuries suffered by a toddler.

Police have released few details, but said the investigation was launched on March 8 and centred around a 20-month-old child.

“The subsequent investigation revealed that the toddler’s severe injury was the result of an assault believed to have been caused by a male who lived in the residence with the toddler,” a news release said.
