Two men have been charged in connection with the alleged attack at the Milton’s Restaurant in Kitchener, Ont., In November.
In a release issued Monday morning by the Waterloo Regional Police Service, a 53-year-old man was charged with one count of assault and a 54-year-old man for one count and one count of utter intimidation.
Police responded to the Milton restaurant on King Street near Fairway Road around 6:40 pm after receiving reports of a man being assaulted.
The video of the incident shows a man being forcibly removed from a restaurant with a service dog.
A few days after the incident, the victim, Justin Leckie, spoke with CTV Kitchener, who revealed that he has autism and that his dog AP helps him with generalized anxiety, panic attacks and depression.
In a statement to CTV on Monday morning, Leckie’s uncle Scott Panzer said, “Our family is at ease as the police have decided on the case. I know he is at ease because this is a major concern for Justin. He thought this was the right process for us to go to.
“We appreciate that this is a complex investigation by the police that gave Justin his Aspergers and service dog status.”
More to come.
