BLIND RIVER - On Oct. 25, 2017, shortly after 7 a.m., members from the East Algoma Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Detachment responded to a domestic disturbance at a residence on Nadon Street in Town of Blind River.

A female had woken from her sleep to find her ex-boyfriend in her residence. The male left the residence while the victim was calling police. Shortly after 9 a.m., police responded to another call at this residence where the ex-boyfriend kicked in the front door and left in a vehicle.

While speaking to the victim, the investigation determined the ex-boyfriend attended the victim's residence on Oct. 4, 2017 in an intoxicated state and began an argument with the victim. The male then threw her electronic device against a wall, causing damage to it. As a result an arrest warrant was issued.

Shortly after 2 a.m. police conducted a traffic stop of a taxi cab and located the ex-boyfriend in the vehicle where he was arrested.
