Thursday police briefs


Inmate partner violence offense

A Tilbury man faces assault charges after Chatham-Kent police learned of domestic abuse recently.

At 7:21 a.m. on Thursday, police were called to Homestead Drive in Tilbury for a disturbance.

When police arrived, they learned that a man and woman had a verbal argument and so the woman called the police.

They also learned through investigation that the man had physically assaulted the woman on two separate occasions.

A 34-year-old Tilbury man was arrested and transported to police headquarters where he was charged with two counts of assault.

Drunk in public

Kicking on someone’s door earned a night in jail for a Chatham-Kent man recently.

On Wednesday at 10:44 p.m. police responded to a call on Tecumseh Street in Dresden for a man kicking at the door of a home.

When an officer arrived, they believed the 20-year-old Chatham-Kent man to be drunk.

Police arrested the 20 year old and transported him to police headquarters where he was held until sober.

Another count of intoxication in public happened on Thursday at 12:57 a.m. where police were called about a man lying on the ground on the north side of the Third Street Bridge.

Police believed the man to be drunk so they arrested the 30-year-old Blenheim man and delivered him to police headquarters where he was held until sober.
