Calgary man charged with domestic violence offences dating back 10 years – Calgary


A 39-year-old Calgary man has been charged with more than a dozen offences in relation to what police say are domestic violence-related incidents that date back a decade.

In May of this year, Calgary police said a woman came forward to report “serious violence from a previous relationship.”

The woman also provided police with the names of two other women who were believed to have been abused by the same person.
