At about 8:30 PM Thursday evening, a report of 6-7 people fighting in the 700 block Rosser Avenue was received. The subsequent investigation revealed that a 36 year-old male had struck 2 male youths after they tried to intervene when the suspect was in an argument with 31 year-old female. One of the youths, 15 years of age, was taken to BRHC by ambulance as he was reported to have lost consciousness after being struck by the accused. A search of the accused located a set of brass knuckles. The suspect was arrested, for two counts of assault and possession of a prohibited weapon, and was lodged at Brandon Correctional Centre overnight. He is to be released this morning on appropriate police-imposed conditions with a court date of September 10th. The 31 year-old female involved was intoxicated and continued to cause problems so she too was lodged at BCC to prevent any further breach of the peace.
