YELLOWKNIFE - Early on the morning of July 21, a man was sent to hospital after being assaulted with a glass bottle, according to police.

The 36-year-old man said he was punched and struck with a bottle by a 38-year-old woman. The bottle attack caused a wound that needed five stitches to close.

The assault took place on 50th street.

While the victim said the assault happened on July 21, it was not reported until July 24.

Further details on the circumstances leading up to the assault were not available at press time.

Spousal assault

A domestic dispute turned ugly in an apartment on 54th street.

Her attacker was later found and arrested. Assault charges are pending.

Prelude attack

A campground on the Ingraham Trail was anything but peaceful on the night of July 28.
