Petrolia youth charged after family on bike ride confronted
Provincial police say they began investigating last month after hearing from other law enforcement agencies that drugs were being imported in vehicles shipped to Canada by rail.
A 17-year-old is facing charges after a Petrolia woman out for a bicycle ride with her three children was confronted.
Lambton County OPP say the 37-year-old woman and her three chidlren were riding along Eureka Street around 10 p.m. last Thursday when the incident occured.
Investigators say a young male allegedly started yelling and swearing at the family and then confronted the woman's 15-year-old son.
The teen was then reportedly punched in the face and the mother pushed by the 17-year-old male. The two other children were not struck.
Lambton OPP responded to the scene and arrested and charged the 17-year-old with two counts of assault.
He is set to appear in a Sarnia court on January 27th.
