On June 6, 2015, members of the West Parry Sound Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a 911 call in Parry Sound.

Investigation revealed that the couple were arguing in an apartment where the male allegedly assaulted the female. The couple then went onto the street and neighbours called because of the yelling.

A 21-year-old male was arrested and charged with:

  • Spousal assault contrary to the Criminal Code (CC) (2 counts)

The male was released from custody and will appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Parry Sound on June 18, 2015.
