Simcoe County paramedics had to rush to aid an Orillia assault victim Nov. 4 who was in “immediate” need of first aid, police say.

The man was treated at the scene of what Orillia OPP is calling a “serious assault” and rushed to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The alleged assault took place at an Elgin Street residence at about 4 p.m.

Officers arrived on scene quickly and were able to track down the suspect who was in the area.

A 27-year-old man from Orillia is charged with assault causing bodily harm.

The accused was held for a bail hearing at the Barrie courthouse.
