Woman injured after being hit, pushed by Chatham man
A 22-year-old Chatham man was arrested last night on assault charges.
Just before 8 p.m. the man was talking to a woman he had been in a relationship with on the telephone. Police say the man got angry when the woman declined to pick him up from his house and drive him to her house.
The man attended the woman’s house on his own, entered through the back door and hit the woman, said police. When the woman asked him to leave, he pushed her, punched out the glass panes within the front door of her residence and then left.
Police were called and attended the Chatham residence. Minor injuries were reported by the woman.
At around 8:30 p.m. officers located the man at his residence. He was arrested and charged with assault.
The man received medical treatment for cuts to his hand from damaging the woman’s door. He is in custody for a bail hearing.
