The suspect, a 33 year old resident of Trent Hills faces three charges including assault with a weapon, and will appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Cobourg in October.

The name of the accused is being with-held to protect the identity of the victim.

The Northumberland OPP say the investigation is ongoing. They are investigating alongside the Central Region Forensic Identification Services.
