A 21-year-old man faces numerous charges in connection with a weekend assault on Lennox Island, say RCMP.

East Prince RCMP were called to a home on Lennox Island at around 4 a.m. Sunday. A male and female in the home had suffered blows to the face and head, said police.

By the time officers arrived, the suspect had left the scene, police said.

Neither victim required medical attention.  

Later that day, the RCMP said they received a tip the suspect had posted threatening messages on his Facebook page.

Police said several other tips that followed led to his arrest at about 5:50 p.m.

The man faces several charges including assault, uttering threats, being at large on an undertaking and breach of probation.
