Police have charged a Sturgeon Falls man with several assault related charges.
The man allegedly beat up his girlfriend for seven hours, before police were called to their home on Queen Street Sunday.
They found the victim severely injured, and going in and out of consciousness.
She was taken to hospital where she was treated for serious but non-life threatening injures.
The 42-year-old accused now faces seven assault related charges including aggravated assault, choking, breach of probation, and forcible confinement.
