Worker struck with hammer

A 32-year-old man was hospitalised Monday after police said he was hit on the head with a hammer at a George Town construction site.

The 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call from a worker on the Anthony Drive site at 11.35am Monday who reported that a co-worker had sustained a head injury and was bleeding.

Police and medics responded to the scene but the man had already been taken to hospital by private car.

His condition was being assessed by doctors Monday.

A 34-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident. He is currently receiving medical treatment to minor injuries.

Anyone with information about the incident who has not yet spoken to a police officer is urged to contact Detective Constable Colin Pryce on 949-4222.
