Owen Sound Police have charged a man in connection with several incidents reported on Tuesday.

Just before midnight on March 24th, a concerned citizen contacted Police to report a suspicious person who had been knocking on doors in an upper east side neighbourhood.  

Police attended the area to look for the male but were simultaneously called away for a house on fire in the same general area.  

Police spotted 3-4 foot high flames coming from an enclosed front porch of the residence.

 Members of the Owen Sound Police Service were able to extinguish the fire before tracking down a man at the scene who set the blaze. 

A 64 year old Owen Sound man was charged with Arson - disregarding human life.  

The same suspect  was also charged with assault and uttering threats after further investigation revealed he was also involved in another unrelated incident earlier in the day.
