A Woodstock man has been charged with sexual assault and resisting arrest following a heated takedown in downtown Woodstock.
Tuesday evening, a 36-year old man started touching a 50-year old woman inappropriately while yelling derogatory comments towards her on a street in the core.
Police responded to a 911 call about the incident from a bystander and attempted to arrest the man on the scene. While he fought with officers, police used a taser to gain control of him for the arrest.
He was taken to hospital by ambulance and continued to behave aggressively, police say.
He was also charged with failing to comply with a probation order.
