A man faces several charges following what police in Lindsay, Ont., are calling a violent crime spree including the assault of two men, police officers and a dog.
City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service say on Monday, a man went to a home where he was confronted by the 73-year-old homeowner about an alleged theft that occurred a year ago.
