Threat charges

A family dispute has led to charges for a man who allegedly broke a window and threatened to burn a house down yesterday afternoon in Lindsay.

Kawartha Lakes Police were called regarding the incident but the man fled the home before officers arrived.

He was arrested after a brief foot chase.

The accused is charged with mischief under $5000, uttering threats to burn property, and two counts of failing to comply with the conditions of his probation order.  

His name is not being released in order to protect the identity of the victim.
