A 29 year old Bruce County man is facing assault charges following incident in Wiarton.

Bruce Peninsula OPP were called to a Berford street address around 9:30 Friday night.

A 44 year old Wiarton man told police that someone had broken into his home, assaulted him and stole some booze.

The OPP investigation revealed the two knew each other and the assault followed a dispute between the men earlier that evening. 

Although Police were unable to find the suspect Friday night, they were able to positively identify him. 

On Saturday, the 29-year-old suspect was found in his home north of Wiarton and he was arrested. 

The accused appears in court tomorrow for a bail hearing.

OPP say the victim spent Friday night in hospital, and is now recovering at home from his injuries.
