The Brockville Police Service laid multiple assault and drug charges against a man who allegedly struck his girlfriend with a crowbar and a knife, then turned his rage toward his pickup truck.

In a media release, police state that on April 25, at about 1:30 a.m., officers received a 911 call from a female in the area of Laurier Field.

She said she had been assaulted by her 33-year-old, boyfriend, who was currently smashing out the windows of a pickup truck with a crowbar.

Officers arrived and found the man sitting by a pickup truck with a smashed window.

“Investigation revealed that the couple were engaged in a dispute that escalated to the point that the male poured a beverage on the female, punched her in the face, threatened her, struck her with a crowbar and also struck her with a knife causing a cut,” police say in a media release.

After the woman made it to safety, the man reportedly continued in his rage by smashing the pickup truck windows and the interior dashboard to the point that it needed to be towed.

He was placed under arrest and resisted the arrest; however, police were able to quickly gain control and no one else was hurt.

The media release says that once he was arrested, officers located a quantity of cocaine, crystal meth, fentanyl, scales, bags and three cell phones in his possession.

He was held in custody for a bail hearing for the following offences: assault, four counts of assault with weapon, mischief over $5,000, three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, uttering threats and resist arrest. Charges have not been proven in court. Police did not name the suspect.

The female received non-life-threatening injuries.
