Antigonish County RCMP are investigating a serious assault that sent a 27-year-old man to hospital with serious head injuries.
At approximately noon yesterday, RCMP responded to a report of a man who had been severely beaten in the Frankville area.
When police arrived, a male was in a car at exit 38 with a woman who was attempting to drive him to the hospital. RCMP were not initially able to determine where the assault had occurred.
