Police remind the public they are 'here to help' after two cases of domestic abuse.

West Grey Police are reminding the public they are here to help after two recent domestic assaults.

Police say on Saturday, August 4th officers were dispatched to a campground where a woman reported her partner had been drinking and smoking pot when he became violent and forced her onto the floor of their trailer.

Police say the man pinned the victim's shoulders down with his hands and started punching the floor around her head.

According to police, the accused let the victim up and she went outside and called police.

Shortly after, officers arrived on scene and arrested the man for one count of assault. He was held for a bail hearing where he was released by way of recognizance.

He's scheduled to appear in Walkerton Court on August 15th.

In a separate case, back on July 28th, West Grey Police were dispatched to a Durham residence were a woman reported her husband had been threatening her as well as being physically abusive.

Police arrested a forty-three year old Durham man.
The accused was brought to the police station where he was processed and later released on conditions.

Police say he will also appear in court August 15th to answer to the charges of Uttering threats and Assault.

Constable Cory Trainor says "If you or anyone you know is in an abusive relationship call the police right away, we are here to help."
