Assaulted man with scissors

A MAN was allegedly attacked with a pair of scissors last Friday night.

It’s alleged that two men, aged 38 and 39, and known to each other, were involved in a verbal dispute at a bus terminal at Memorial Drive, Granville, about 9.30pm before the older man struck the younger man in the back of the head with the scissors.
The injured man was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital for treatment.
The older man was charged with reckless wounding.
