Guelph Man Charged with Assaulting Police Downtown

Attempting to avoid a trespassing ticket led to criminal charges for a Guelph man who attempted to punch a police officer.

Approximately 3:15 p.m. Sunday a member of the Guelph Police Service was on foot patrol downtown when he spotted a male entering a business and knew him to be banned. The officer escorted the male from the business and intended to issue a ticket under the Trespass to Property Act.

The male became irate and tried to walk away. When the officer tried to stop him the male turned and attempted to punch the officer in the head. He was taken to the ground and arrested.

A 28-year-old Guelph man is charged with assaulting police and two counts of breaching a probation order. He will appear in court May 31.
