Domestic incident leads to charges
In response to a complaint reported to police regarding a domestic incident, North Bay Police arrested a 21-year old man at his North Bay residence on Saturday and charged him with:
- Three counts of assault; and
- Two counts of forcible confinement.
It is alleged that sometime in early November 2015, an argument between the accused and his female partner in their shared apartment turned violent when the accused prevented her from leaving the residence and physically held her for a period of time.
It is also alleged that in the early morning of Saturday March 5th, 2016, another argument between the two in their shared apartment turned violent when the accused tossed their baby onto their bed, and then physically held his partner and blocked her from leaving the apartment for a period of time.
The woman was later able to leave the apartment unharmed with her baby, who suffered minor injuries.
The accused, whose name the North Bay Police Service has withheld in the interest of protecting the identity of the victims, was released from custody with a court date scheduled for March 15th, 2016.
