Domestic abuse charges



A fit of rage resulted in the arrest of a Ridgetown man early this morning.

Police say on Oct. 24, a man went to a residence in Chatham and pushed his way through the door. Once inside, the man assaulted the victim.

The man then left the home, and went to a friend’s house, police say, where he became unruly and assaulted a woman there, police say. The man left before police arrived.
