Charges laid after incidents of domestic violence

Two men are facing charges after a pair of recent investigations into some domestic disturbances in Chatham-Kent.

Police said in the first case, a 37-year-old man of no fixed address was charged with one count of mischief and two counts of uttering threats. He’s accused of threatening his ex-girlfriend and breaking a window at her home in Chatham, causing about $300 in damage.

In that case, the accused was later released pending a future court date.

In the second case, police were called to an address in Howard Township Tuesday night and arrested a 26-year-old man accused of domestic assault.

Police said as a result of their investigation, the man was charged with one count each of mischief and assault along with two counts of assault causing bodily harm. He was taken into custody pending a bail hearing.
