Police say a 29-year-old man has been charged with assault in connection with a woman falling from the balcony of a Talbot Street apartment a week ago.

Around 9 a.m. on Saturday, police were called to 695 Talbot Street for reports a woman had fallen from a balcony.

She was transported to hospital where she remains in critical but stable condition.

But police say it now appears the 21-year-old had suffered injuries prior to her fall.

Justin Primmer has been charged with assault causing bodily harm in the case. He is being held in custody and will make a court appearance via video on June 3rd.

An investigation into the cause of the fall continues.
