Man Accused Of Taking Bat To Neighbour’s Door

A baseball bat is meant to hit a ball, not someone’s door.

A Chatham man is learning that lesson after allegedly using a bat to knock on his neighbour’s door a little too aggressively in the rooming facility where he lives.

Police say that happened on November 20. The damages are estimated at $500.

Officers say the same man is accused of throwing a piece of plywood through a window at that same rooming facility eight days later, on November 28. The damage to the window is estimated at $200.

Police couldn’t find the suspect right away, so they issued a warrant for his arrest and managed to pick him up in Chatham at around 1pm Wednesday.

A 47-year-old man is now charged with two counts of mischief under $5,000.


Out Past Her Curfew With The Wrong Guy

Even a court order couldn’t keep these two apart.

Chatham-Kent police say a woman who was released from custody last month and ordered to stay inside her residence between 11pm and 7am was allegedly out past her curfew early Thursday morning with a man she had been ordered to stay away from.

Police say they found the woman at around 4am Thursday on the man’s property.

As a result, a 24-year-old Chatham woman was arrested and charged with two counts of failing to comply with her release conditions.
