Toronto police have charged a man with assault after an incident with a Toronto Parking Enforcement officer on Danforth Avenue earlier this week.

A man has been charged with assault in connection with an incident involving a Toronto Parking Enforcement officer in the East Toronto area earlier this week.

Police were called to the area of Danforth and Kelvin avenues, just east of Dawes Road, at 4:07 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 21, for a reported assault.

According to police, a Toronto Parking Enforcement Officer had issued a parking ticket for an illegally parked vehicle on Danforth Avenue when a man approached the officer from behind. Police alleged the man slapped the officer’s left hand, grabbed the device that issues the parking tickets and threw it to the ground. The man then got into a vehicle and drove away, police alleged.

Later that day, Douglas Maybury was arrested and charged with assault. He was released and is scheduled to appear in court in April, police said.
