A Windsor man is facing public mischief charges after allegedly making a phone call to police about a false incident.

On June 5, the 40-year-old man allegedly reported to police that he witnessed a domestic argument between a woman and a man who was waving a gun.

Through an investigation, police determined there was never an argument or a weapon involved.

The man is facing two counts of public mischief, misleading a peace officer.


A Windsor man wanted for theft is now facing additional charges after police were led on a foot chase in downtown Windsor.

A Windsor police officer spotted the suspect getting off a motorcycle in a parking lot in the area of Ouellette Ave. and Eugenie St.  As the officer began to place the man under arrest, he allegedly escaped from custody and fled on foot.

The police officer caught up with him after a brief foot chase in the backyard of a home on Stanley St.

Police also determined the motorcycle the man was driving had been reported stolen.

The 41-year-old is now charged with escaping lawful custody, possession of stolen property under $5,000, theft over $5,000 and breach of recognizance.
