Woman faces charges for domestic violence
Following an investigation into a domestic violence complaint reported to police early this morning, North Bay Police arrested a 22-year old woman at her North Bay residence and charged her with:
- One count of assault;
- One count of assault peace officer;
- One count of breach of officer in charge undertaking; and
- One count of breach of probation.
It is alleged that on Friday, March 11th, 2016, shortly before 1:30 a.m., a verbal dispute between the accused and her female partner in their shared residence turned violent when the accused physically hit her, resulting in minor injuries. North Bay Police officers arrived at the residence to investigate shortly thereafter. While under arrest, the accused kicked a male police officer, who did not sustain injuries.
The accused, whose name the North Bay Police Service is withholding in the interest of protecting the identity of her female partner, was held for a bail hearing.
