Chatham Man Facing Concealed Weapon Charges


policeCharges have been laid against a Chatham man after an altercation earlier this week at a local rooming house.

Chatham-Kent Police say the accused went to the facility on Wednesday looking for a room, but was refused service.

As the man was leaving, the manager noticed he was holding a baseball bat and a large butcher’s knife and called police.

Officers tracked down the 38-year-old, whom authorities say was under a court order from previous violent offences.

He’s now facing charges of breach of probation and possession of a concealed weapon.
