Man charged after social worker punched

A social worker was treated at hospital after being punched in the upper body during a home visit, police say. They've arrested and charge a suspect.

The male worker reported the incident at the police station just before 5 p.m. on June 6, after he was released from hospital.

He told police that he was at a home in the 800-block of 14th Street when he was involved in some kind of a dispute with a man living at the home. The worker was punched, and went to Brandon Regional Health Centre to get his injuries treated.

Police say they were able to locate and arrest the suspect.

A 47-year-old Brandon man is to appear in court on July 23, on a charge of assault.
