A Quebec man is facing an aggravated assault charge after allegedly hitting another man with a stool amid an argument at a Niagara Falls residence on Sunday.
Police say the incident happened sometime overnight at a home near Lamont Avenue and Mundare Crescent.
The 40-year-old victim was transported to an out of town hospital with a serious head injury just after 3 a.m.
“The initial investigation by officers determined that an argument had escalated to violence and the victim was struck with a kitchen stool,” Niagara Regional Police said in a statement.
The 32-year-old from Normandin, Que., made a court appearance in Hamilton on Sunday and remains in custody as of Monday awaiting another hearing in St. Catharines, according to police.
