Child locked in vehicle

On July 18, 2021 at approximately 5:05 PM, Brockville Police received a report of a four-month-old infant locked in a vehicle at the 1000 Islands Mall.  The temperature was approximately 28 degrees Celsius and sunny. 

On arrival, the infant’s mother indicated the child had been in the vehicle for approximately 15 minutes and the keys were locked inside. Out of concern for the child’s safety officers gained access to the vehicle by breaking the front passenger window using a breaching tool.



July 23, 2021 at 7:26 PM, officers were dispatched to a north end residence for a family dispute.  A 41-year-old male had assaulted his stepmother and father.  The male fled the area prior to police arrival.  The investigation led to reasonable grounds for his arrest for two counts of assault and one count of mischief for damaging a door.  He was located and arrested on July 26 at 5:22 PM on King Street West.  He will appear in court at a date in the future.
