SOUTH GLENGARRY — A 56-year-old South Glengarry man has been charged in connection with an SD&G OPP investigation into the alleged sexual and physical touching of a youth known to the accused.

The detachment arrested the man Nov. 21 on charges of sexual assault on a person under 16 and sexual interference.

The accused was released to appear Feb. 5 in Alexandria court. His name has been withheld to protect the identity of the victim.

185 km/h on Highway 401 through South Dundas

SOUTH DUNDAS — A Scarborough motorist’s 185 km/h trip through South Dundas came to an abrupt halt Nov. 19 when the SD&G OPP intercepted the involved vehicle on Highway 401.

Officers pulled the 34-year-old driver over shortly after 1:20 p.m., immediately impounding the vehicle and seizing the individual’s drivers’ licence for seven days. In Ontario, those roadside consequences apply when exceeding the posted speed limit by 50 km/h or more, under the province’s stunt-driving legislation. The Scarborough visitor faces additional fines and penalties if found guilty when returning here to face the charge in court.
