Victim uncooperative with police

Just before 7pm on March 14th, police responded to a disturbance outside of a Willow Road apartment building. When police arrived to investigate they learned that two men had been fighting and one of the men was knocked unconscious.

Believing the man's injuries to be serious, the 29 year old Guelph man was transported by ambulance to the hospital and the second male was arrested for assault. After arriving at the hospital and undergoing medical testing, it was learned that the man was not suffering from any visible injuries.

He would not cooperate with police with any information to support a charge in the assault. As a result, the 22 year old male who assaulted him was released unconditionally without charge.
