A 45-year-old man is facing a slew of charges after another man was assaulted and robbed by an individual with a knife on Monday evening, South Simcoe police say.
The incident occurred at about 7 p.m. in the Killarney Beach Road and 20th Sideroad area in Innisfil, Ont.
According to police, the victim and his group had befriended the suspect and a woman earlier in the day.
After the incident, the suspect left the scene with the woman on foot prior to police arrival, though officers found and arrested them.
Police seized a knife and cocaine. Officers say the male victim didn’t require any medical treatment.
The suspect — Carlos Cavalheiro, 45, from Innisfil — was charged with assault with a weapon, robbery with a weapon, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose, obstructing a peace officer, failure to comply with a release order and cocaine possession.
He was held for a bail hearing.
Megan Johnston, 37, from Angus, was arrested on an unrelated warrant from another police service and turned over to that service’s custody.
