A Guelph man faces assault and weapons charges after an employee of a social service agency was beaten with a metal pipe Sunday.

Approximately 2:20 p.m. police were called to the area of Silvercreek Parkway North and Woodlawn Road West. A former client who is banned from the facility had attended and was confronted by a staff member. The client picked up a metal pipe and repeatedly struck the employee in the torso, arms, legs and head.

When the victim took out his phone to call for help, the accused struck him in the arm causing him to drop the phone. The accused then picked up the phone and put it in his pocket.


The assault ended when another staff member pulled into the parking lot. The subject was located a short distance away and arrested. The victim was transported to hospital for treatment of his injuries.

A 45-year-old Guelph man is charged with assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and theft under $5,000. He will appear in court July 16.
