Four people are facing charges after death threats were allegedly made at gunpoint and an officer was bitten in the arm by the mother of one of the accused.
South Simcoe police allege that two teens were harassing a young woman and boxed her car in at Innisfil Beach Park early Friday morning.
When some of the woman’s friends came to help her, one of the males pulled a gun out of the trunk of his car, pointed it at one of her friends and threatened to shoot him.
Two male suspects were caught and arrested.
The firearm was located and secured, which turned out to be a pellet gun.
Officers say a 17-year-old from Innisfil has been charged with pointing a firearm, dangerous driving, assault and uttering threats.
A 17-year-old from Barrie is charged with pointing a firearm and uttering threats.
Investigators say the parents of one of the accused started yelling at officers and witnesses, and during their arrest, an officer was bitten on the arm.
They say the officer was treated by a paramedic at the scene.
A 45-year-old Innisfil woman is charged with assaulting a police officer and obstructing a police officer.
A 51-year-old Innisfil man is also charged with obstructing a police officer.
All four are to appear in court in August.
