CORNWALL, Ontario - A 28-year-old Cornwall man was arrested Tuesday after his common-law wife was viciously attacked.
It's alleged that last month the man and his 27-year-old wife were involved in a verbal argument when he punched her in the head and headbutted her.
Things escalated to the point where he even threatened to stab her, and then allegedly sexually-assaulted her earlier this month.
On Tuesday, while on routine patrol, a member of the Cornwall Community Police Service was flagged down and made aware of the allegations. An investigation ensued and the man was taken into custody, charged accordingly and held for a bail hearing.
His name was not released as it might identify the victim in the matter.
