South Simcoe Police charged an Ontario teenager on Monday after an altercation injured and sent another teen to the hospital.

At around 8:20 p.m. on Wednesday, September 14, police were called "regarding a 13-year-old male who was taken to hospital after collapsing shortly after arriving home from school," they stated in a press release.

Following an investigation, the Criminal Investigation Bureau determined that the "teen had been injured in a physical altercation."

A 13-year-old boy from the town of Bradford West Gwillimbury was charged with aggravated assault. Being a minor, his name cannot be shared publicly due to the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, and the teen has since been left in the care of his parents, awaiting a future court date.

At the moment, the 13-year-old victim is in the hospital in "critical condition," according to the South Simcoe Police.

The information surrounding the altercation is still unclear, but police said they have become aware of a video circulating online showing the fight.

They are appealing to anyone who has the video to submit it to Crime Stoppers at www.p3tips.com or call the anonymous tip line at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS).

Additionally, anyone with further information into this incident is being asked by police to contact Detective Constable Andrew Smith at 905-775-3311, extension #1043, andrew.smith@southsimcoepolice.ca or Crime Stoppers.

Last week, a 25-year-old man from Woodstock was charged after a sword fight in a parking lot was caught on video.

Harjot Singh has been charged with two counts of assault with a weapon.
