A 20-year-old Brandon man is recovering from a stab wound to the neck after a battle Saturday morning between two groups of people. Police say it started earlier in the morning with a fight involving a 19-year-old man - and ended at a home in the 800 block of 4th Street where a group of people broke in and bear sprayed everyone.

It's alleged that's when the 19-year-old stabbed one the home invaders. Police say those involved in the break and enter - two men and a woman - face a number of offences including break enter and assault and possession of a prohibited weapon (bear spray). The 19-year-old male occupant, who allegedly stabbed the intruder, has been charged with aggravated assault. He was to appear in court Sunday (Nov 3). Police say the parties involved in both occurrences are known to each other.
