On Sunday, July 3, around 9 p.m., officers responded to a reported dispute between neighbours in the former Verulam Township. Three people reported a man assaulted them and threatened them with a crossbow.

The investigation led to the arrest of a 45-year-old City of Kawartha Lakes man who was charged with three counts each of assault and uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and one count of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

He was later released and is scheduled to appear in court in Lindsay on July 28, OPP said Wednesday.
