Windsor Police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding an attempted murder on Hickory.

Police say that just after midnight, they were called to the 1600 block of Hickory after a vehicle crashed into the front porch of a residence.

Residents and neighbours awoke and assisted by putting out a fire that started in the engine area of the Ford F150 pickup truck. The male driver’s legs were pinned in the damaged vehicle.

Windsor EMS and Fire attended and worked to extricate the male which took about thirty minutes. He was transported to the hospital where he was treated for minor abrasions and released.

He was arrested at that time for impaired driving and transported to Windsor Police Headquarters.

Witnesses have provided information to police indicating that prior to the accident the male driver had assaulted his common-law wife who then escaped from the vehicle. The male then attempted to run the victim down with the truck. The victim was able to take shelter behind a tree and was not struck by the vehicle. She did suffer facial injuries during the previous assault and was treated and released from hospital.

The 28-year-old male Windsor resident will face charges including attempted murder, dangerous driving, assault with a weapon, assault, theft of a motor vehicle and breach probation.

He will be arraigned in court on Monday morning July 8th.

Investigators request anyone with information that could assist with this investigation to contact the Major Crime Unit at 519-255-6700 ext 4390 or Crime Stoppers at 519-258-8477.
