Domestic Charges

A 31 year old Brockville man is facing domestic charges of assault, forcible confinement and mischief after police were called to a disturbance at a north end apartment complex Wednesday night.

Just before 11:00 p.m. Brockville Police received calls from residents in the north end of a man and woman arguing in the parking lot. While on the phone with police communicators, the caller watched the man and woman leave in separate vehicles.  While officers were speaking with the caller at the scene, police communicators received a second call from a frantic female who was one of the participants in the disturbance at the apartment building. She advised communications staff she and the couple’s one year old child who was also in the car, were being followed by her common-law husband and child’s father whom she was arguing with. Communicators kept her on the phone line until she was able to drive herself safely to the police station where she was interviewed by police.

During the interview she disclosed to police an earlier incident which took place inside the apartment where she was assaulted, property damaged and prevented from leaving.  As a result her partner was located a short time later and arrested without incident and will be appearing in Brockville court for a bail hearing.

The 25 year old female victim suffered minor injuries as a result of the incident. The one year old child did not appear to suffer any injuries.
