The Greater Sudbury Police Service (GSPS) has charged a woman after an incident at Nickel Belt Liberal candidate Marc Serré’s office.
In a release, GSPS says the woman went inside the office on Monday and began yelling, then pushed a table against Serré, pinning him against a wall.
GSPS says she tried to swipe at his hands with her cell phone as he recorded the incident on his cell phone, striking his hands twice.
GSPS says she continued to yell, claiming to have been injured by a campaign sign, before eventually leaving.
However, later on, when Serré was leaving the parking lot in his vehicle, GSPS says the woman jumped out in front of him and began striking the hood of his vehicle and yelling.
It’s also alleged she kicked the office door, which had already been locked when she was unable to retrieve belongings that she had left behind.
The 56-year-old woman is facing an assault with a weapon charge.
She has a November 17th court appearance.
