A 36-year-old man is accused of choking his girlfriend after an alleged incident in Dover on Sunday.

Man arrested after moving out

A 29-year-old man of no fixed address is charged with failing to comply with his release conditions after allegedly moving out of a residence without notifying police ahead of time.

Chatham-Kent police said officers went to check on the man at his last known address last Saturday and learned he was no longer living there even though he had previously been ordered to notify police in writing three days before changing his address.

Officers were not able to immediately locate the man, so they issued a warrant for his arrest.

He was arrested at the courthouse in Chatham Tuesday morning when he showed up at the building on an unrelated matter. The accused was taken into custody pending a bail hearing.


Mail stolen from Chatham apartment building

Police are investigating after several mailboxes at an apartment building on Bedford Street in Chatham were damaged. Officers said a man damaged them early Tuesday morning between 3:50 a.m. and 4:10 a.m. and then stole mail.

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man in connection with the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 519-436-6600 ext. 8107336 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).


Wanted man arrested in Chatham

A 32-year-old Chatham man is in more trouble with police after allegedly contacting a woman he was ordered not to communicate with.

Police said the man was released from custody earlier this month with several conditions including one that required him not to communicate with a specific woman.

Officers said they learned earlier this week that the man and the woman were allegedly involved in a “disturbance” and they were able to find the woman, but not the man, so they issued a warrant for his arrest.

Police picked the man up Tuesday morning while they were responding to a call about an unwanted man at a business on King Street in Chatham and charged him with failing to comply with his release conditions.

The accused was then taken to the courthouse where he was being held pending a bail hearing.


Chatham woman turns herself in

A 36-year-old Chatham woman is charged with two counts of failing to comply after allegedly contacting a man and a woman she was ordered to stay away from.

Police said the woman was ordered not to communicate with a specific Charing Cross man or a specific Chatham woman after being released from custody back in December.

Officers said the woman allegedly contacted both of those people over the past weekend and then turned herself in at police headquarters Tuesday morning.

The accused was arrested, charged, and taken to the courthouse pending a bail hearing.
