Meaford | by Bayshore News Staff  

72-year-old male accused allegedly struck three victims with bat, smashed windows of vehicles.

A 72-year-old Meaford man faces numerous charges after allegedly wreaking havoc with a baseball bat.

Grey Bruce OPP say officers were called to a residence on Sideroad 25 in Meaford at 11:59 p.m. on July 4, and located a group of young adults who said they were confronted by a male with a baseball bat when they returned to a cottage after they had set off some fireworks by the lake.

Police allege the 72-year-old man assaulted three people with the bat, striking them in the shoulder areas. The accused also allegedly smashed the windows of several vehicles before leaving the property.

Two of the victims were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, while the third victim did not require medical attention.

Provincial Police say the male suspect was identified and located later that night at a residence in Stayner.

Robert Gullacher, 72, was arrested and charged with multiple offences, including three counts of assault with a weapon.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.
