An alleged tire slasher was arrested in Wallaceburg last week.

Chatham-Kent Police Service officials say in October 2017, a man was released from custody with various conditions.

One of his release conditions was to abstain from communicating with a certain woman that is known to him.

On Thursday night, just before 7:30 p.m., the man allegedly became involved in an argument with another male that is known to him.

This argument occurred within a parking lot of an apartment complex in Blenheim.

Police allege the man removed a knife from his pocket and slashed a tire of the male’s pick-up truck and then left the area.

Police were called and started their search for the man since his whereabouts were unknown.

Through investigation, officers also learned that the man had been in contact with the woman he was not supposed to have any communication with.

At 11:30 p.m. on Thursday the 30-year-old Blenheim man was located in Wallaceburg.

He was arrested and charged with mischief under $5,000 and failing to comply.

He was then transported to Chatham-Kent Police Service Headquarters where he has been held for a bail hearing.
