Man charged with domestic assault

Barrie police report that a conversation between parents of a small child regarding child-care issues took a turn for the worse, Thursday morning.
The child’s mother, police say, reported being assaulted by the man. “While they were talking the accused was seated and the victim bent down to pick an item up off the floor, at which point the accused kicked her near her breast area and she stumbled backwards, quite startled by the assault,” police report.
The woman, say police, was prevented from using the phone by the man, who, it is alleged, threatened to cause her physical harm. The woman also told police of a previous, unreported, incident when, she says, she was grabbed by the throat.
The Barrie man was arrested and charged with two counts of assault and utter threats. He was held pending a bail hearing Friday morning.
