CORNWALL – A city man in his late 20s is facing 15 charges after a domestic disturbance Tuesday where police say the accused threw things at them and sprayed them with an unknown chemical.

Cornwall police say they were called because a wall and a door had been damaged in the home of the man’s grandmother.

That’s when officers were met with flying objects and an “unknown chemical.” There were no reported injuries to the officers involved.

Police seized a knife, BB gun and a razor blade at the home.

Once he was arrested, he was taken to the Cornwall Community Hospital where more items were damaged in the hospital and a police officer had their taser taken.

The 28-year-old man is charged with three counts of assaulting police, possession of a dangerous weapon, administering a noxious substance, mischief, disarming police, carrying a concealed weapon, resisting arrest and three court breaches for having weapons.

His name was not released because it’s a domestic-related case.
