CORNWALL, Ontario – A man, fresh off punching out a teenager, according to city police, was also brandishing a knife and packing a hand-held BB gun during an attack on Cornwall’s waterfront.

The scuffle between the 26-year-old Cornwall man and a 17-year-old youth happened near Park Street Monday, August 25.

Police located the man at a Montreal Road address on August 27. He was arrested and taken into custody.

‘Spitting image of a troublemaker’

While police had her in custody, the woman spat on a special constable at the courthouse.

She was charged with assault causing bodily harm and assaulting police. The woman was held in custody for a bail hearing.
