Disturbing the peace

Police are searching for a 42-year-old woman after allegedly robbing a different woman and fighting with her on Sunday night.

Brockville Police responded to reports of a fight between two women at 9:30 p.m. on Buell Street, where they found one of the women at the scene.

She was the victim in the situation, police said, but she was also wanted by the Ontario Provincial Police for an outstanding warrant.

She alleged the second woman stole from her and did so with violence. The victim had minor injuries as a result of this incident.

The second woman involved had left the area before police got there, but she is “known to police” and “will be charged with robbery when she is located.”

The victim was turned over to the OPP for the outstanding warrant.

Breach of probation

A man was arrested after Brockville police saw him yelling while at a location he was ordered by the courts to avoid.

Police were on Cartier Court on Sunday just before 4 p.m. for an unrelated matter when they saw the 39-year-old. He drew attention to himself by yelling at “unknown people,” police said in a release.

He was bound by a probation order not to be at that location, they added.

He was arrested without incident and will appear in court at later date to answer to the charge.
