Local Resident Charged After Reported Attack At Ken Reid Conservation Area Near Lindsay

KAWARTHA LAKES-The City of Kawartha Lakes OPP is currently investigating an altercation that occurred at a local dog park and conservation area.

Police say on February 22, 2021 an OPP officer responded to a call to assist paramedics at the dog park. The ensuing investigation indicated that an altercation between dog owners had occurred, resulting in one party receiving injuries when struck by the other, police say. There were no reported injuries in relation to the dogs according to police.

The victims posted about it on Facebook saying there had been an incident with the man’s dog and when her mother tried to intervene she was attacked.

“Next thing you know we try to go and he’s in my moms face screaming at her for touching his dogs collar. Then he raises this wooden paddle and I screamed not to touch her with it.
He then starts beating her and slashing her arm. We finally got away and called the police and ran toward the administration Center.”

Patrick Cullen, 39 years of age, of the City of Kawartha Lakes, was arrested and charged with the Criminal Code offence of assault with a weapon.

The accused is scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Lindsay on March 11, 2021.

The victim, who does not want to be named, is warning others to be careful on the trails.

“I want others to be aware of this as I truly believe he was waiting for someone to come to attack. I fear what would have happened if we went down a trail alone.”
