An Ottawa man faces several charges after police say a woman was assaulted with a knife Wednesday night in an apartment on Cumberland Street.

Police said the incident began Wednesday night after 10 p.m. when a man physically assaulted a woman after an argument at an apartment. The man and the woman knew each other, police said.

The same man came back later with a knife, approached the woman and brandished the knife, injuring her hand. The injuries are not considered life-threatening.

An 18-year-old Ottawa man was expected in court Thursday to face charges of assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, possession of a weapon and two counts of assault.
