Man accused of striking ex-girlfriend with car
A 41-year-old man is facing charges after allegedly striking his ex-girlfriend with his car.
Police say a verbal argument started between the man and the woman at an apartment in Ridgetown yesterday morning.
As the man left, the woman followed him outside in an effort to return some property to him.
While in the parking lot, as the woman walked away, the man reportedly struck her with his car. The man then fled the scene at a high rate of speed.
The woman was transported to the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance for medical attention of non-life-threatening injuries.
Last night, police located the man and he was arrested. The man has been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and assault with a weapon. He is in custody for a bail hearing.
