Disturbance in Wallaceburg leads to robbery charges

Four men face robbery charges after an alleged disturbance in Wallaceburg.

Chatham-Kent Police Service officials allege around 5 a.m. yesterday morning, officers responded to a disturbance at a home in Wallaceburg.

“Through investigation, police learned that four men assaulted the homeowner during an argument and stole a box of collector coins,” police officials allege.

“The men fled prior to police arrival. The homeowner, a 34-year-old Wallaceburg man, was transported to Sydenham District Hospital for medical attention of non-life threatening injuries.”

Police say the homeowner recognized two of the men, which led police to a residence in Dresden, where all four men were located and arrested.

A 36-year-old man, 33-year-old man, 27-year-old man, all from Dresden, along with a 36-year-old man from Howard Township have all been charged with robbery.

All four men have been remanded into custody pending a bail hearing.
