A quarrel involving a married couple has led to assault charges for a Wallaceburg man.

Chatham-Kent Police say a man and a woman began arguing around 4am Saturday in a home on Queen St. The man allegedly grabbed his wife by the throat and repeatedly knocked her to the ground. The woman was not injured, and she was able to get away.

The couple argued again a few hours later, and the man left the house, police say. When he returned, he found himself locked out of the house. The man kicked in the door, grabbed some belongings and left.

The 26-year-old has been charged with assault and mischief under $5000. The man is being held pending a bail hearing.


A Chatham teen has been arrested for breaking into a house.

Police say four young males forced their way into a home on Jeffery St Saturday. The homeowner chased the suspects out and called the police. When officers were unable to locate the suspects right away, their descriptions were taken.

On Saturday evening, a 17-year-old male was located on Payne St. Matching the description of one of the suspects, he was taken into custody, charged with break-and-enter with intent.

He was held at C-K Police Headquarters for a bail hearing.
