During the dispute, a 39 year-old male from West Grey was violently assaulted with weapons, punched and threatened with further violence if he refused to turn over a sum of money.

The man was charged with two counts of Assault with a Weapon, Assault, Extortion, Uttering Threats and Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
