December 2, 2016 Incidents

Motor Vehicle Accident

On the 2nd of December 2016 at 1:00 pm, police responded to a motor vehicle accident on Stewart Blvd., north of Laurier Blvd. Three vehicles were involved. Stewart Blvd. was closed from Laurier to Centennial Rd. The accident occurred as a north bound Ford Escape was stopped waiting to make a left hand turn into a car dealership when it was rear ended by a north bound tow truck. This caused the Ford Escape to be pushed into the south bound lanes striking a Chevrolet Impala. Involved parties where either treated at the scene for minor injuries or transported to Brockville General Hospital for treatment. None of the injuries were serious in nature. All three vehicles had to towed from the scene. Charges are pending against the tow truck driver.


Pedestrian Struck

At approximately 7:20 pm, on the 2nd of December, a 53 year old male was struck by a motor vehicle as he was jogging crossing an intersection. Witnesses stated that the pedestrian had the right of way as he had a walk signal. The pedestrian was transported to Brockville General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver has been charged accordingly.


Phone Scam

Brockville residents have received similar calls advising them that their son/grandson had been involved in an accident and would be held in custody unless a sum of money was sent via western union. The “grandparent” scam has been described by the complainants as sounding very convincing.



On the 2nd of December a 29 year old male wanted on outstanding warrants was located by Brockville Police at a downtown business. The male was arrested without incident and was held for a bail hearing.


Domestic Assault

A 44 year old female was arrested in a domestic assault investigation that occurred in the city’s north end. The female was charged with assault and mischief. She has been released with a future court date.
