- one count of domestic assault;

It is alleged that at approximately 3 a.m. on Saturday June 11th, an argument between the accused and a female victim in their shared residence turned violent when the accused grabbed a hammer, threatened the victim, forced the victim to stay and then physically hit her.
The victim was able to leave the premises shortly thereafter. The accused also left the premises and was later located by police at another residence from where she was arrested and taken into custody.
The accused, whose name the North Bay Police Service is withholding in the interest of protecting the identity of the victim, was held in custody for a bail hearing.
