Guelph man arrested for swinging hockey stick at employee in store he's banned from: police
Guelph police have arrested a man they say went to a store he is banned from, swung a hockey stick at an employee, was arrested when he came back to the store, and was arrested again when he returned to the same store the next day.
According to a news release, the man went into a business downtown around 1:40 p.m. Monday, despite having several courts orders requiring him to stay away.
When an employee reportedly approached the man to remind him he wasn’t allowed to be there, he began swinging a hockey stick over his head before pointing it at the employee.
Police say the man fled on foot, but was arrested when he returned to the same business once again several hours later.
According to another news release, the man was released on the condition he would not go back to the business, but returned to the store on Tuesday and was arrested for a second time.
A 24-year-old Guelph man has been charged with assault with a weapon, two counts of failing to comply with release conditions, two counts of failing to comply with probation, and several breach charges.
He is set to appear in court in early December and bail court on Thursday.
