Criminal Harassment/Extortion

(Bradford, ON) A 27-year-old Bradford man was charged after South Simcoe Police Service officers recently responded to a report of Criminal Harassment and Extortion.

The female victim told police she had received unwanted, constant communication from her ex-boyfriend who also threatened to extort her. The accused surrendered to police at the South Division where he was charged and released with a future court date.

The Department of Justice defines criminal harassment as behaviour that often consists of repeated conduct that is carried out over a period of time and that causes its targets to reasonably fear for their safety but does not necessarily result in physical injury. It may be a precursor to subsequent violent and/or lethal acts. Call police if you are a victim.

From Friday, October 23, 2020, to Monday, October 26, 2020, South Simcoe Police Service officers responded to 211 calls for service.
