On Sunday June 3rd, Windsor Police were called to Hotel-Dieu Hospital after a woman had arrived there by ambulance with extensive bruising and apparent closed head injuries.
Officers spoke with the 64-year-old woman who told them that her injuries had been inflicted on her by a 48-year-old man who had been living with her as a tenant for the past two years. The woman suffered life threatening injuries and is currently being treated in the Neurological Unit at Hotel-Dieu Hospital.
Police say that the woman and the suspect resided together at a home located in the 2300 block of Francois Road, and during the weeks leading up to Sunday June 3rd, the woman’s family became concerned for her physical well-being. The Saturday before one of the woman’s sons received a phone call from the tenant telling him that the woman had fallen and that she had suffered extensive bruising. When the woman’s son attended the residence he immediately recognized the severity of the woman’s injuries and called an ambulance.
The 48-year-old tenant became nervous when ambulance was called and left the residence in the woman’s vehicle prior to ambulance arrival. Windsor Police have issued an arrest warrant for Phillip Barry Evans of Windsor.
Evans is wanted on charges of Aggravated Assault, Forcible Confinement and Breach of Probation. Police say that Evans is aware of the warrant and has been evading arrest.
On June 6th, Evans lawyer contacted police to relay a message from Evans that he had parked the victim’s vehicle in the parking lot at Devonshire Mall. The vehicle has been recovered.
