A Brampton man has been charged with attempted murder following a Peel Police investigation into intimate partner assault.

In a press release issued Wednesday (Feb. 16), police said they were called to a Brampton home after a woman was allegedly strangled by her partner on Monday.

The woman was treated at the scene for her injuries. Police arrested the suspect, a 39-year-old Brampton man, also at the scene, and seized a loaded illegal firearm from the house after executing a search warrant.

The suspect was charged with the following offences:

  • Attempt Murder
  • Assault causing bodily harm, strangulation
  • Uttering threats
  • Assault (2 counts)
  • Unauthorized possession of firearm
  • Knowledge of unauthorized possession of firearm
  • Possession of a prohibited/restricted firearm with ammunition
  • Careless storage of a firearm

The suspect appeared before the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton for a bail hearing on Tuesday. The survivor continues to be provided with supportive community resources, police said.

“This is another example of an incident which could have very easily had fatal outcomes,” said Nick Milinovich, Deputy Chief of Investigative and Emergency Services for Peel Regional Police.

“Our service is committed to continuing the work with our partners to end gender-based violence. If you or someone you know is experiencing this please find help.”
