The victim was one of three men riding bikes on a path near Bestwood Lodge Drive, Arnold, on Friday, May 29.
He suffered cuts to his head and body and was taken to Queen’s Medical Centre for treatment.
Graham Timlick, 67, was arrested at a property in Cairngorm Drive at around 8am this morning and charged this afternoon with grievous bodily harm, affray, criminal damage and possessing an offensive weapon.
He was also charged with two offences of affray and possession of a bladed article in relation to an incident on 13 August 2019 when a group of teenagers were threatened, also in the Bestwood Lodge Drive area.
