A man is facing assault charges after Toronto police say an officer was assaulted outside a police station and left with serious injuries.
Police say two officers were speaking with a man in front of 53 Division (on Duplex Avenue at Eglinton Avenue West) just before 11 p.m. Tuesday, in regard to his “interfering with traffic.”
It’s alleged that the man suddenly attacked both officers, causing serious injuries to one of them.
The officer was taken to hospital and treated for a head injury.
Alexander James, 22, of Newmarket, is charged with aggravated assault on a peace officer and assault on a peace officer.
His court date has not yet been scheduled.
