Man Charged Following Domestic-Related Standoff  

(Innisfil, ON) A 41-year-old man is facing several charges after South Simcoe Police Service officers responded to a domestic-related call with a possible person in crisis.

On Sunday, November 29, 2020, around 9:30 a.m., a female victim reported to police an incident that occurred two days prior in another jurisdiction where a man known to her threatened to harm others and himself. The male suspect subsequently went to a residence in the Innisfil Beach Road and St. Johns Road area of Innisfil where he barricaded himself inside and refused to communicate with police. A warrant to enter the residence was obtained. On Monday, November 30, 2020, shortly after 1:00 a.m., entry was gained with assistance from the tactical team and the man was arrested without incident. As a result of the investigation, a 41-year-old Innisfil man was charged with Utter Threats, Assault, Possession of Property Obtained by Crime and Take Motor Vehicle Without Consent. The accused was held for a bail hearing. No one was injured in the incident. The man’s name is not being released due to the domestic-related nature of the incident.

The safety of the public, the person involved and responding officers is paramount when police are dealing with this type of incident. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we resolved this situation without anyone getting hurt.
