Hammer attacker convicted
An Ottawa man has been found guilty in a spree of daylight ambush-style hammer attacks on unsuspecting women.
Nabil Benhsaien, 38, was found guilty on a dozen counts of aggravated assault and assault with a weapon for his string of random attacks on five women between 2010 and 2013.
Benhsaien said little in court Thursday, consulting briefly with defence counsel Joseph Addelman before being escorted into custody. He is due back in court on Jan. 29, with Crown prosecutor John Semenoff requesting a mental health assessment.
