Intimate Partner Assault

​Recently, Halton Regional Police Service officers were dispatched to a residence after receiving a call from a concerned party who could hear yelling and what sounded like items being broken inside a nearby residence.​

When police arrived at the scene, they could hear yelling, and found a male adult and female adult who were previously involved in a common-law relationship. The male and female were not in a relationship at the time of this incident. Also present at the scene was another female, as well as young children.

Officers immediately noted visible injuries to one of the victims, and further observed damage to the residence.

The male accused was arrested and subsequently transported to Central Lock Up. Thereafter, the Halton Regional Police Service Domestic Violence Investigative Unit took carriage of the investigation. The accused was later released on a promise to appear, charged with two counts of assault (one on each female) and mischief under $5000.

Upon arrest of the accused, the victim was referred to the Halton Regional Police Service Domestic Violence Victim Coordinator within our Victim Services Unit. The Victim Services Unit acts as a connector to appropriate support services in the community, assists with safety planning and victim care, and through the Victim Quick Response Program+ (VQRP+), can provide immediate short-term financial support toward essential expenses for victims of violent crime.  

Please note: These allegations have not yet been proven in court. No further details will be provided regarding this investigation.


Every person has the right to feel safe in our community.
