The 55 year old Abbotsford police officer critically injured when he intervened in a dispute while visiting in Nelson last week, has now died.

Constable Allan Young had been on life support since the assault last Thursday and the Abbotsford Police Department says he died last night, surrounded by family.

A statement from the department says the smile and character of the Scottish-born officer who immigrated to Canada in 1997 ``can never be replaced.''

A 26 year old was arrested in Nelson after Young was injured and Nelson police say the man remains in custody, currently charged with aggravated assault.
