A man was arrested after a woman was thrown from a moving vehicle near Kalum Street early Sunday morning.

Around 6 a.m., police received a report of a woman falling out of a vehicle as it drove onto Scott Avenue from Kalum Street. Emergency responders arrived and treated the woman for non-life threatening injuries.

Bat brawl at Brolly Square

Two men were arrested following reports of a man trying to fight another with a bat at Brolly Square.

Around 3:45 p.m. on Sunday June 10, police attended the area at Emerson Street and Lakelse Avenue and arrested two men, one of whom had a bat. Both were taken to the hospital for assessment and deemed fit for incarceration. Officers collected statements but were unable to get a clear version of events, nor would the identified victim cooperate with the investigation.

Both men were taken back to cells, one to sober up safely, the other for outstanding arrest warrants.

Probation breach on Park

A man was arrested for breaching probation after police received a report of an assault on Park Avenue.

On June 10, just before midnight, police were called to the 4600 block of Park Avenue in Terrace. A man was reported to be stomping on another man’s head. Officers located a group nearby and although one man had injuries, all were uncooperative.

One of the men present was found to be breaching a probation order and was arrested as a result.

A man lost his license for 90 days after a vehicle stop in Thornhill Friday night.

Around 8:30 p.m. on June 8, 2018, police conducted a traffic stop on Clark Street near Paquette Avenue. After talking to the driver, a roadside breath test was administered and registered a fail.

The man was issued a 30-day vehicle impound and 90-day driving prohibition under the Motor Vehicle Act.

Police attended five files related to domestics, and seven related to disturbances over the weekend.

Of the domestics, three were verbal in nature, one involved a man breaching his no-contact conditions, and another was an unsubstantiated assault.
