Wawa Man Arrested on Assault, Robbery, and Threat-Related Charges

A Wawa man's facing assault, robbery, and threat-related charges after an incident late last week.

Superior East Ontario Provincial Police say they responded to a disturbance in progress on Churchill Avenue in Wawa late on the night of Thursday, March 14th.

Investigation revealed the suspect and victim were former housemates - the suspect was allowed into the residence to retrieve some remaining personal belongings, but instead found a baseball bat and proceeded to threaten the victim, taking some of their belongings and leaving before police arrived.

The suspect - identified as a 25-year-old Wawa man - was located in Wawa on Sunday, March 17th, arrested on charges of robbery with a weapon, assault with a weapon, and uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm.

He's been released from custody, scheduled to appear in Wawa's Ontario Court of Justice in early April.
