Nanaimo RCMP say an arrest has been made in the case of an alleged attack at a local hotel.
On Thursday a man staying downtown says he met a second man and they went together to his room.
He was then reportedly assaulted, tied up, threatened, and had some property stolen.
The victim sustained serious injuries and was taken to hospital.
Now 28-year-old Gabriel Stephen Nelson of Qualicum Beach has been charged with aggravated assault, forcible confinement, and robbery.
He will appear in court on May 1 in Nanaimo.
