Woman, wounded man both arrested while walking in Chatham

A 39-year-old Chatham man and a 33-year-old Chatham woman accused of hurting him are both facing charges after police caught up with them while they were walking in Chatham Monday morning.

Chatham-Kent police said they were checking on the man just before 8:30 a.m. Monday after someone saw him walking on Scane Street in Chatham with a wounded arm.

When officers found the man, he allegedly gave police a fake name.

Police said a woman was also with the man at the time and when they found out who he really was, they learned that he had been released with a condition not to communicate with her.

Officers said they also determined that the woman was the one who hurt his arm.

Police said the man refused medical attention and was charged with failing to comply and obstructing a police officer. He was taken back to police headquarters and held for bail.

The 33-year-old Chatham woman who was with him, and accused of hurting him, was charged with facilitating a breach of a release order, assault with a weapon, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

She was later released with conditions and a future court date.
