Police Briefs – Monday, January 29, 2018

A Tilbury man is facing numerous assault charges following a domestic incident.

Police were called to a home in Tilbury around 7pm Sunday, where they discovered that the man had allegedly assaulted his wife on eight separate occasions since December.

Officers noted some physical injuries but no medical attention was needed.

The 47-year-old man was arrested and charged with three counts of assault and five counts of assault with a weapon.


Allegedly failing to show up for a scheduled court date has landed a Wallaceburg man back behind bars.

Police say the 40-year-old was released from custody back in December of 2016, but allegedly failed to show up at court, so a warrant was issued.

Officers found the man Monday morning and charged him with failing to attend court. He is being held in custody for a bail hearing.
