Chatham Youth Facing Charges

Chatham-Kent police have arrested and charged a youth following an argument with his grandmother yesterday afternoon.

Police allege the boy poured pop on his grandmother, damaged a computer and phone and wrote obscene language on the wall.

When a neighbour attempted to intervene, the youth threatened her and fled. Police located the boy hours later and took him into custody.

A 13-year-old Chatham boy has been charged with two counts of mischief under $5,000, assault and uttering threats.

The suspect has been released with conditions awaiting a future court date.
