An Ajax man has been arrested in connection to the robbery and assault of a Peterborough man last fall.

Peterborough Police Service said they responded to the attack on a 62-year-old Peterborough man in September. The victim was allegedly choked and required hospitalization.

Investigators identified a suspect who was known to the victim and secured a warrant for their arrest. However, that would take some time.

Months later on Feb. 16, officers arrested the suspect, a 50-year-old Ajax man. They have not released the suspect’s name. The suspect was charged with robbery with violence, assault causing bodily harm with choking, aggravated assault and failure to comply with probation.

The man made his first appearance in court on Feb 17.
