Man accused of harassing ex-girlfriend

A 21-year-old man of no fixed address is facing charges after he allegedly showed up at his ex-girlfriend’s home, knocked on her window, and refused to leave when she asked him to go.

Police said they picked him up after they got a call about an unwanted man at a residence on Charing Cross Road in Harwich Township Sunday night.

The man was charged with uttering threats and criminal harassment for repeatedly sending messages to the woman and was taken into custody pending a bail hearing.


Blenheim man arrested for breaching release conditions

A 36-year-old Blenheim man is back in police custody after he allegedly visited a woman he was supposed to stay away from.

Police said an officer on general patrol spotted the man’s vehicle in the area of the woman’s house on Sunday — even though he had a court order that required him to stay at least 100 metres away from her.

A short time later, the man was allegedly seen leaving the woman’s home, so he was arrested and charged with failing to comply with his release conditions.
