OPP: Man charged after striking others with hammer

CLIFFORD - A local man has been charged after allegedly striking two men in the head with a hammer following “a night of drinking” last weekend.

On May 13 Wellington County OPP were called about alleged assaults in a garage on William Street North in Clifford.

Police say “two men were involved in a physical altercation after a night of drinking.”

The men were separated and one of them left, only to return about 30 minutes later to hit one of the victims on the head with a hammer.

“A third male attempted to intervene and was also struck on the head with the hammer,” police say. “The victims received minor injuries.”

Eli Cook, 29, of Clifford, was charged with two counts of assault with a weapon.

He is to appear in Guelph court on July 11.
