A Brandon man has been charged with assault after his girlfriend was sent to hospital Thursday evening.
Police were called to a home in the 1100-block of Rosser Avenue just past 9 p.m. that night, where officers found that the female victim had been assaulted earlier in the evening. She had injuries to her upper body and was treated at Brandon hospital. She's since been released.
Her boyfriend was taken to jail overnight. The 41-year-old was to appear in court on Friday.
