A Blenheim man is facing several charges, accused of threatening a woman with a sledgehammer.

According to Chatham-Kent Police, the man got into an argument with the victim at a Sherman Street home shortly after 10 last night and allegedly damaged various items in the house before threatening the victim if she didn’t give him money to buy a radio.

Authorities say the man is also accused of threatening to hurt or kill the victim on two previous occasions.

The 64-year-old is now charged with three counts of utter threats to cause bodily harm, one count of assault with a weapon, and one count weapons dangerous.

He was released from custody with a date in court next month.
