Early Morning Break-in leads to arrest

A 24 year old Brockville area man is in custody again this morning following an early morning break in Sunday to his former girlfriend’s apartment on Kensington Parkway.

Brockville Police received a call shortly after 6:00 a.m. Sunday morning from the 20 year old female victim that her former boyfriend had kicked in her door and was now in her apartment throwing things around. While officers were responding to the apartment, Brockville Police communications staff stayed on the phone with the young woman to ensure her safety and to update officers. When officers arrived the suspect had fled the scene. Officers observed the shattered front door to the apartment and pieces off door lying on the living room floor.

While there police interviewed the victim and checked each floor and the perimeter of the apartment complex but were unable to locate the 24 year old man. However, just before 9 a.m. the young man returned to the apartment where he was arrested by police for Break and Enter and taken into custody.

Further investigation revealed the accused to be bound by two probation orders from September 2017. He is now facing charges of Criminal Harassment, Break and Enter and three counts of breaching a Probation Order. He was held in custody and will appear later today for a bail hearing.
