“The accused was on conditions from an incident in November to not attend the residence or have communication with the victim,” reads a media release from police.
“The accused choked the victim to the point of nearly going unconscious, struck the victim in the face and then broke the victims cell phone when they attempted to call 911 a second time.”
Police arrived and located the accused a short distance away.
They were charged with breach undertaking, break and enter, assault and mischief under $5,000.
“The accused was released with a court date,” the media release reads.
On Dec. 18, officers were once again contacted by the victim reporting that the accused had returned to their residence on the night of the initial incident.
“The victim was sleeping and woke up to the accused demanding the victim have the charges dropped and when they refused the accused choked the victim until they were unconscious,” reads a media release.
“The following day the victim attended the hospital and was determined to have multiple fractures to the face.”
The accused was arrested and charged with assault causing bodily harm; attempt to obstruct justice; break and enter and two counts of breach undertaking.
They were held for a bail hearing.
