Brain injury victim on trial

A 29-year-old Kamloops man who suffered a serious brain injury when he was stabbed in the eye with a pool cue has returned to court — this time facing his own charges related to domestic assault allegations.

Abdulaziz Alhedaib (ABDOO'-la-zeez ALLEY'-dab) appeared briefly in provincial court Monday.

According to court documents, he has been charged with assault with a weapon and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Alhedaib was the victim of an attack at Cactus Jacks Saloon in November 2012 when an acquaintance jabbed a pool cue in his eye.

He was celebrating his birthday with friends on the night doctors say he nearly lost his life.

Yousef Almotairi (YOO'-suf AL-motaree) was found guilty last July of aggravated assault and assault with a weapon and deported to Saudi Arabia.
