A brawl on Spring Garden Road overnight saw both the victim and the man believed responsible charged.

Halifax Regional Police responded around 2 a.m. where they found a 22-year-old man on the ground. Witnesses told officers he had been kicked in the head repeatedly.

It didn’t take police long to catch up with the 20-year-old Halifax man allegedly responsible. He’s been charged with assault causing bodily harm.

But it’s the 22-year-old victim from the Enfield area who remains in jail.  He’s been charged for violating conditions of his probation.

He’ll appear in court pending the outcome of a medical evaluation.
