By Lindsay Advocate

On Friday May 4 at 9:15 pm the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service received a report that an assault and theft had occurred at a Lindsay residence.

The caller to 911 reported that the man responsible for the assault had left the home.

Police attended the residence to speak with victims and witnesses but were unable to locate the man who was alleged to have committed the assault.

On the morning of Saturday May 5, shortly after 6 am the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service located the suspect at another Lindsay residence.

After speaking briefly with officers through a closed door to the home, the suspect refused to exit the residence.

A trained negotiator with the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service was successful in making contact with the suspect.

About six hours later the suspect surrendered himself peacefully to police.

A Lindsay man has been charged with break and enter, two counts of assault, theft under $5000, possession of property obtained by crime and four counts of failing to comply with the conditions of his probation order.

He was held in custody and attended a bail hearing on Sunday May 6.  The man’s name is not being released in order to protect the identity of the victims and witnesses.
