BRADFORD - On Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2017, just before 10 p.m., South Simcoe Police Service officers were called to a home in Bradford after a neighbour reported a loud domestic argument. When officers arrived, they could hear a man and a woman arguing and a child crying.

When the two officers entered the apartment, they were both (allegedly) assaulted by the woman. She was arrested and taken from the scene. At the station she assaulted a third officer and damaged a door on the police cruiser.

The male occupant of the apartment was evasive with officers and lied about his name. When his true identity was revealed officers found that the man was in violation of a bail recognizance. When he was taken to the station, he damaged a door in the cell area.

A quantity of marijuana was also seized from the apartment.

A 27-year-old Bradford woman was charged with three counts of assault police, assault with intent to resist arrest, possession of marijuana and mischief under $5,000.

A 29-year-old man from Markham was charged with obstruct police, two counts of fail to comply-recognizance, possession of marijuana and mischief under $5,000.

Both were held for a bail hearing.

The child was not injured and was taken by family. The assaulted officers did not require medical attention.
