CORNWALL – One man is charged and another man is nursing some bumps and bruises after a golf club attack in Cornwall on Monday.

City police allege the accused conspired with others to carry out the attack early Monday morning in the city where the victim was whacked with a golf club before having his wallet, cell phone and other personal items stolen.

The victim was treated at the Cornwall Community Hospital for his injuries, which were characterized as minor, police spokesman Stephanie MacRae told Cornwall Newswatch.

A 41-year-old Cornwall man was arrested on Tuesday and charged with robbery, three counts of assault, possession of fentanyl and conspiracy.

He will appear in a Cornwall court in November.

Police add that it wasn’t a random attack – the accused and the victim knew each other.
