Ottawa Police arrest man for Brockville warrant
A 49 year old Ottawa man was arrested early yesterday morning by the Ottawa Police for an outstanding warrant held by the Brockville Police Service in relation to a domestic disturbance from earlier this month.
On the 17th of July 2017 officers responded to a Perth Street residence to check on the wellbeing of a woman living at the home. Once at the address police learned from her about a series of domestic incidents involving herself and former boyfriend over a period of time which resulted in the Brockville Police seeking an arrest warrant for the man.
As a result of the arrest Brockville officers attended to Ottawa and took the man into custody and returned him to court for a bail hearing.
Bail Hearing for Domestic Charges
A 24 year old Brockville man will be in court this morning facing a series of domestic related charges as a result of several dealings with police over the past month.
At approximately 8 p.m. last evening the Brockville Police received a call indicating the 28 year old female victim was at her residence with the door locked. There was banging on the door and eventually the door handle was broken off the door and the suspect fled. The caller suspected it was the 24 year old man that attended and called police to alert them out of concern for the woman’s safety. While police were checking the area the man returned to the apartment and made his way inside. Officers arriving overheard the yelling inside the apartment and entered to ensure the safety of the woman. Once inside they found the 24 year old man and placed him under arrest for domestic assault, and conveyed him to police headquarters.
While investigating the domestic disturbance last evening, officers also learned the man was wanted for an assault on July 7th involving the same victim and was also on probation for similar offences in the past. As a result he was taken into custody for assault, breaching his probation and mischief and held in custody for a bail hearing.
