Police have laid aggravated assault charges after two months of investigation into a beating.
The assault happened March 29, in the 1300-block of 18th Street, and had not been previously reported. However, police say the victim was punched in the face, leaving him with a broken jaw and the loss of three molars. The victim required several surgeries to repair the damage.
Now, a 24-year-old man has been charged with aggravated assault. He's been released on a number of conditions and is to appear in court on July 28.
