NORTH DUNDAS – A man and a woman from Ottawa face serious criminal charges after armed intruders broke into a rural Thompson Rd. home and threatened the occupants last night (Nov. 15).
The victims and the perpetrators knew each other, so names are not being released, according to the SD&G OPP, which responded to the incident at 10:25 p.m.
Police say an adult male and female entered the dwelling and confronted those inside. The victims were threatened but not injured by the suspects, who fled the scene. Police located the duo in Ottawa, where they were arrested.
The 32-year-old man is charged with: Break, Enter into a Dwelling – Commit Indictable Offence; Utter Threats; Possession of a Weapon for Dangerous Purpose; Assault with a Weapon; Pointing a Firearm; Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm; Carry Concealed Weapon (knife); and Fail to Comply with Recognizance (three counts).
The woman, also 32, is charged with: Break, Enter into a Dwelling – Commit Indictable Offence; Utter Threats; Possession of a Weapon for Dangerous Purpose; Assault with a Weapon; Pointing a Firearm; and Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm.
Both accused were held in custody pending a bail appearance at the Ontario Court of Justice in Cornwall.
