18-year old North Bay man accused of assault with a weapon

An 18-year old North Bay man is accused of assault with a weapon, following an altercation between him and another young man that took place on Saturday.

On Saturday, November 29th, 2014 at approximately 6 p.m., in an apartment located in downtown North Bay, the accused and a 20-year old North Bay man entered into a verbal argument, which quickly escalated into a physical fight.

During the fight, it is alleged that the accused stabbed the other man several times with an edged weapon. The victim then fled the apartment and called 911. Paramedics were immediately dispatched to transport him to hospital to seek medical attention for his non-life-threatening injuries.

Shortly thereafter, North Bay Police located and arrested Dustin Seddon, age 18, at his North Bay residence, and, following an investigation, charged him with one count of assault with a weapon. He was held in custody for a bail hearing.
