Niagara police say the 32-year-old accused assaulted a woman multiple times near Eastwood Crescent and Ontario Avenue after she got into his pickup truck 20 minutes earlier at Clifton Hill and Falls Avenue.
The woman was ultimately sent to an out-of-town trauma centre with serious injuries. She has since been released from hospital and is still recovering from injuries.
The suspect was arrested on Tuesday and made his first court appearance via video conference on Wednesday.
