Trespassing, 3 day suspension, calls for service

The following are news releases issued by the South Simcoe Police Service:

A 36-year-old Innisfil man is charged with two counts of Assault and Assault With A Weapon following a domestic incident.  South Simcoe Police Service officers were called to a home in Innisfil  around 10:30 p.m. on April 19, 2018.   The 34-year-old victim, who is the wife of the accused, was waiting for police down the street from the home. The woman told police that her husband threw a bag of onions at her and pushed her down the stairs into a wall.  The victim's mother also lives in the home and reported that she too had been assaulted.  The accused, who appeared intoxicated, was arrested on scene and transported to South Division where he was held for bail.  Officers completed a safety plan with the victim who also accepted help from the Victim Crisis Assistance Referral Service. 

 On Thursday, April 19, 2018 around 10:30 a.m., South Simcoe Police Service officers were called to a Holland St. West complex for a report of a trespasser.  The caller told police that a man who had previously been barred from the building was possibly in a second floor unit.   Officers went to the second floor with the caller.  While speaking to that person outside the unit in question a man opened the door and upon seeing police quickly slammed the door shut. The investigating officer then knocked on the door and the man answered.  The man was informed that he was not allowed to be anywhere on the property which he admitted to knowing. When asked by police he turned over his key to the building and was escorted from the property.  The 40-year-old Tottenham man was charged under the Trespass To Property Act and cautioned about returning.


On Thursday, April 19, 2018 around 9:30 p.m., an officer was on general patrol in the area of Holland St. East and Marshview Blvd. in Bradford. The officer observed a vehicle driving in a manner that led the officer to believe the driver may be impaired.  A vehicle stop was conducted and a demand was made for breath sample into an Assisted Screening Device. The test resulted in a Caution warning.  As a result the 49-year-old Bradford woman's licence was seized and a 3-day suspension was issued.  The driver called a friend to come to the scene and pick up her vehicle on her behalf. 

On Thursday, April 19, 2018, South Simcoe Police Service responded to 69 calls for service.
