On September 18, 2020, at approximately 6:46 p.m., members of the East Algoma Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a disturbance outside the Elliot Lake detachment.
The complainant had reported travelling on Hillside Drive South in his vehicle attempting to overtake an E-bike. The E-bike immediately cut left directly in front of the complainant’s vehicle, causing them to stop abruptly. A verbal dispute ensued and the E-bike operator proceeded to take a U-lock off the bike and threaten the complainant with it. Both parties later attended the OPP detachment and continued to argue outside.
After police investigation, the E-bike operator was arrested and charged.
Joshua BAINES, 36 years of age, of Elliot Lake, was charged with:
Assault with a Weapon, contrary to section 267(a) of the Criminal Code (CC).
The accused is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Elliot Lake on December 1, 2020.
