Standard man arrested for assault

    On  Sunday, October 30 at approximately 1 a.m., Strathmore RCMP responded to a complaint of a break and enter to a dwelling in the community of Standard.
    The investigation revealed that two males were involved in an altercation at the Standard bar earlier in the night with both eventually going their separate ways. One male returned to his home and fell asleep on his couch.
    The other individual from the earlier altercation attended this residence, entered it without permission and attacked the occupant once again as he slept.
    The victim was taken to Strathmore Hospital for treatment of serious but non life-threatening injuries. The accused in this matter is also alleged to have assaulted another male in front of the Standard bar earlier the same evening.  The accused and the victims are known to each other.
    As a result of the investigation, Charles Martin Gerard, 31, from Standard, has been charged with break and enter into a dwelling house and committing an assault causing bodily harm.  He is charged with a second count of assault causing bodily harm and uttering threats. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
    If you see or know the location of this individual or if anyone has any other information regarding this matter, please contact the Strathmore RCMP detachment at (403) 934-3968 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
