Assault in downtown Chatham

A local man has to answer to charges after someone got roughed up on Fifth Street in Chatham Tuesday night.

At 10:05 p.m., police responded for an assault investigation. Upon arrival, officers learned one man assaulted another, resulting in minor facial injuries.

A 52-year-old Chatham-Kent man was arrested and charged with assault.

Assault causing bodily harm

Police picked up a teenager early Wednesday morning, wanted in connection with assault and theft investigations.

Officers responded about 1:15 a.m. to an unrelated matter on Grand Avenue East in Chatham when they located the man. The man was known to the officers from previous encounters and was wanted for a March 3 assault investigation and a February theft investigation.

An 18-year-old Chatham-Kent man was arrested and transported to police headquarters, where he was held pending a bail hearing. He is facing charges of assault, assault causing bodily harm, two counts of possession of stolen property and two counts of theft.

Alarm blares, men arrested

A Tuesday evening alarm at a Park Avenue East business in Chatham resulted in two men being arrested.

The alarm went off about 8:30 p.m. Police were called, and as officers searched the area, they located two men on Payne Street and confirmed they both were wanted on outstanding warrants.

Officers learned a 46-year-old Chatham-Kent man had been released by the court in early February and had a court date later that month. When the man failed to make the appearance on that date, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest.

The man is facing the following charges: obstruct a peace officer, break and enter, possession of break and enter tools, failing to comply with a release order, two counts of failing to attend court, and four counts of failing to attend court after having appeared. He was arrested, transported to police headquarters, and held pending a bail hearing.

A 48-year-old Chatham-Kent man is facing the following charges: failing to comply with a summons, failing to comply with a release order, two counts of failing to comply with an undertaking, two counts of failing to attend court, eight counts of possession of stolen property, and eight counts of theft. He was arrested, transported to police headquarters, and held pending a bail hearing.

Cell phone damaged, man arrested

Four days after starting an investigation over a damaged cell phone, police found their suspect.

During a March 8 investigation, police formed grounds to charge a man for damaging the phone.

They also learned he was wanted on a warrant for violating his release conditions.

On Tuesday evening, about 10 p.m., police spotted the man at a convenience store on McNaughton Avenue in Wallaceburg.

A 29-year-old Wallaceburg man was arrested and is charged with mischief and failing to comply with a release order. He was transported to police headquarters and held pending a bail hearing.

Skipped court date

At 6:29 p.m., police located a man on Warwick Drive in Chatham.

Officers confirmed the man was wanted on an outstanding warrant for failing to attend court in relation to a January theft investigation.

A 49-year-old Chatham Kent man is currently facing the following charges: two counts of theft and two counts of possession of stolen property.

Bail violations

At 10:46 a.m., police conducted a well-being check on man reported to be slumped over in a chair outside a multi-unit building on Michener Road in Chatham.

Officers arrived and located the man sleeping. Further investigation revealed the man was wanted on an outstanding warrant as a result from a November 2023 bail violation investigation. Upon a search incident to arrest the man was found in possession of suspected fentanyl.

A 45-year-old Chatham man was arrested and transported to police headquarters, where he was held pending a bail hearing. The man has been charged with failing to comply with a release order and possession of a controlled substance.

In early August, the court released a man with conditions to reside at a specific Thamesville address and to remain inside that residence between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.

However, a check on the man in early February at his home at 12:30 a.m. was futile, as police say the man was not home.

Tuesday night just before 11:30 p.m., an officer located the 33-year-old Thamesville man on Sherman Street in Thamesville. He was arrested and transported to police headquarters, where he was held pending a bail hearing. The man was charged with failing to comply with a release order.

An ankle monitor gave police all the information they needed to track down a bail violator, police say.

The man was released from court in late February with the ankle monitor and a condition requiring him to be in his residence between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.

On Tuesday night, 22 minutes after the 11 p.m. requirement, police learned the man was outside his residence.

Officers attended the Wallaceburg location provided and located the man.

A 30-year-old Chatham man was arrested and charged with failing to comply with a release order. He was transported to police headquarters and held pending a bail hearing.
