Innisfil man facing 5 charges
INNISFIL – A man was arrested after his girlfriend told police she had been assaulted and forcibly confined earlier in November.
At the urging of a friend, South Simcoe police said a woman told officers she had been assaulted twice and prevented from leaving a house, as well as having her cellphone taken to prevent her from calling for help.
Police went to a man's home and he surrendered following a brief, peaceful standoff.
After his arrest, police determined the man was also facing domestic violence charges in another city with a different victim.
A 40-year-old Innisfil man was charged with two counts of assault, forcible confinement and two counts of failing to comply with the conditions of his release.
He was held for a bail hearing.
