Suspect in custody for assault and related charges


The Windsor Police Service has arrested a male suspect for several charges, including assault, after an incident early Saturday morning. 

On February 3, 2024, shortly after 2 a.m., officers responded to a call for an injured person in the 900 block of Elm St.

When officers arrived, they located a female suffering from a fractured leg. Through investigation, officers learned that a male suspect broke into the female’s apartment and confined her to the bedroom. The victim was strangled and struck several times before the suspect threatened to kill her. When the suspect left the bedroom for a short time, the victim fled to the window and jumped, sustaining serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect fled before police arrived, but was quickly located and arrested in the 1400 block of Curry Ave. Both parties involved were previously in an intimate partner relationship.

Following an investigation by our Major Crimes Unit, officers determined that this suspect had a history of assault and sexual assault.
