Police Investigation Leads to Several Charges Against Hamilton Youth

In November 2019, Hamilton Police began an investigation after a youth came forward and reported that he had been the victim of a serious assault. The police investigation revealed that the offences occurred in June 2017 and in January 2019. At the time of these offences the victim did not report the matter to police due to fear. The victim only reported the matter to police after learning that the accused youth in this matter was in custody for an unrelated incident.

In June 2017, the victim attended a residence in the East End of Hamilton with several other parties. While at the residence, an altercation occurred between the victim and the accused. The accused assaulted the victim with a weapon, threatened the victim and forcibly held the victim against his will. The victim suffered non life threatening injuries and later sought medical attention after leaving the scene of the assault.

In January 2019, the victim and the accused were involved in a verbal argument. During the course of that argument, the victim was threatened by the accused.

As a result of the police investigation a 14-year-old Hamilton youth was charged with Assault Cause Bodily Harm, Forcible Confinement and Uttering Threat to Cause Bodily Harm or Death X2.
