A Sheshatshiu man who was already in trouble with the law over his alleged threatening behaviour towards a woman in the community was arrested overnight Saturday.
According to an RCMP news release, the 30-year-old man was charged last month for assault and arrested again on Thursday for allegely threatening the same victim.
Police responded to another call concerning that man at 1:30 a.m. Saturday. The accused reportedly fled from police on foot before he was eventually caught in a wooded area.
The man is now set to face 11 additional charges, including uttering threats, breaching recognizance, and resisting arrest. He remained in custody as of Saturday morning.
