A Hamilton man faces charges after an assault at the District Nightclub in Kitchener.

Regional Police say they arrived to the club on King Street just after 1:30 a.m. on Sunday after a man allegedly smashed a bottle over a security guard’s head, causing lacerations.

A security team then restrained the man as they tried to escort him out of the bar– but he became aggressive, and ended up injuring his own arm while attempting to escape.

The injured security guard and the suspect were both taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries.

Police say a 42-year-old Hamilton man has been charged with assault causing bodily harm and assault with a weapon.
