Police investigate domestic violence
Dec. 20, 2011
Chatham-Kent police arrested a man and a woman following an alleged domestic dispute in Chatham Monday night. When officers attended an apartment on Richmond Street around 10 p.m., they reported seeing through a front window that a woman was on top of a man, punching him in the head.
The man had a large cut on his head and was covered in blood.
During attempts to place the couple under arrest, both accused kicked officers and the man spat blood in one’s face.
A 39-year-old Chatham woman was charged with assault, obstructing police, and two counts of assaulting a peace officer.
A 43-year-old Dover Township man was charged with two counts of assault with the intent to resist arrest.
Both were held in custody to await bail hearings.
