Two attacked with a metal baton
Kawartha Lakes Police Service allege two residents were attacked with a metal baton.
They received a report of the assault outside of a Mary Street west home in Lindsay Thursday.
A woman and her boyfriend were leaving their home when they were confronted by a man known to them. The confrontation escalated when the woman was forced onto the ground by the accused.
The man then allegedly produced a metal, extendable baton and made a threatening gesture at the woman with the weapon. The woman's boyfriend attempted to help her, but was also assaulted by the man.
The woman and her boyfriend were able to break away from the male, returned to their home and telephoned police.
Charged with assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and failing to comply with the conditions of his probation order is 22-year-old Devon Hedley.
