Police have arrested a Chatham-Kent 15-year-old for a string of charges — including assault — after a skirmish that started with a game of "nicky nicky nine door."
Police say it started when a group of youth in Blenheim were playing the game, which involves knocking on doors or ringing doorbells and running away. It was about 7:20 p.m. on Wednesday.
That's when the victim, who lived in one of the homes, confronted the youths, police say.
One of the youths jumped on the homeowner and assaulted him, police say.
"During the assault, the youth dropped and left behind their book bag, which was picked up by a party attempting to help the victim," Chatham-Kent Police Service said in a news release.
"The accused then later attended the women's home, demanding the book bag be returned and threatened the woman and her family."
Officers were called to a home on John Street West, police say.
They've charged the 15-year-old with disguise with intent, assault and uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm.
