Three Peterborough residents have been charged following a domestic incident on Tuesday night.

On October 17, 2017, officers on patrol were contacted by neighbours and passer-by’s regarding a domestic dispute taking place at a Peterborough residence.

It was reported that during an argument inside the residence the accused assaulted the victim, a 19-year-old Peterborough woman.

As a result of the investigation, officers attempted to place the male under arrest during which time he resisted and assaulted an officer.

While attempting to speak with the victim the victim attempted to punch one of the officers.

At this time the mother of the male accused, a 52-year-old Peterborough woman, arrived on scene and interfered with the investigation and struck an officer in the face.

As a result of the investigation the following arrests were made:

A 25-year-old Peterborough man is charged with:

  • Domestic assault
  • Assault with intent to resist arrest
  • Mischief under $5,000 X2
  • Fail to comply with a probation order

A 19-year-old Peterborough woman is charged with:

  • Assault peace officer
  • Obstruct peace officer
  • Fail to comply with a probation order

A 52-year-old Peterborough woman is charged with:

  • Assault peace officer
  • Obstruct peace officer

All three parties were held in custody and are scheduled to appear in court later today (Oct. 18).

Due to the domestic nature of this incident and in order to protect the identity of the victim no names will be released.
