The Criminal Code defines assault with a weapon as "any assault committed on another person with a weapon." The definition also includes any attempt to commit an assault with a weapon or any other act or omission that causes bodily harm to another person while using a weapon. It is a hybrid offence, so the Crown can choose to proceed by indictment (more serious) or summary offence (less serious). This decision is based on the circumstances of your offence. If you are convicted of assault with a weapon, you will face up to 10 years in jail.
