Officers from the North Bay Police Service arrested a physician on Monday, following an incident police say occurred at the North Bay Regional Health Centre last Thursday.

Police say they will not release the name of the accused in order to protect the identity of the victims. 

The accused in this incident is a 45-year-old male who is charged with:

  • One count of assault with a weapon
  • One count of utter threats

On April 18, 2024, NBPS was contacted after an incident at a local hospital involving a physician who police say assaulted a patient and threatened another person at the hospital.

Officers from the Criminal Investigations Unit have concluded their investigation, and arrested and charged the accused after he turned himself in at police headquarters on Monday.

The accused was released on an undertaking with a future court date.

The doctor will not continue to work at the hospital until the resolution of his case, says an official from the health centre.
