On September 25, 2022, police responded to a report of a male beating up a female in the street in the area of Cornell Bay shortly after 8:00 pm.  Multiple witnesses report that they attempted to stop the male from assaulting the woman; however, their attempts were unsuccessful and the male tried to fight them instead.

After the male fled from the area, police set up a perimeter and used the Police Service Dog Unit to locate the male who was found hiding in a yard nearby.  The 32-year-old male suspect would not comply with the directions of police and was subsequently bitten, sustaining injuries before he was taken into custody.

Both the male suspect and the victim were taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries.  The victim, a 30-year-old female, received serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Once the suspect received medical treatment, he was lodged at Brandon Police Service and will appear in court today on charges of Break and Enter and Commit Aggravated Assault, Resist Arrest, Fail to Comply with Release Order X2 and Fail to Comply with Probation X2.
