The victim did not require medical attention. Officers contacted the suspect, who turned himself in. A 27-year-old man has been charged with Domestic Assault. He will be residing in Barrie, and has been ordered to stay away from the victim while he awaits his May court date.
BRADFORD - A Bradford resident gave out a little too much information over the internet. South Simcoe Police were notified after a victim clicked on an email attachment and provided vital credit card information. The email claimed to be from iTunes, with a "click here if you did not make these purchases" link. This scam, known as Phishing, attempts to get credit card information from unsuspecting victims by imitating legitimate websites.
South Simcoe Police advise you to check the senders email address carefully to establish credibility. Better yet, contact the company directly for advice.
