Marwan Tabbara, an Ontario MP facing assault and break and enter charges, made a short appearance in court on Thursday, where his case was adjourned to next month.
Tabbara, 35, was charged with two counts of assault, one count of break and enter and commit an indictable offence, and one count of criminal harassment on April 10.
According to a police document obtained by the National Post, Tabbara is accused of watching a home for a period starting Jan. 1, 2020, and ending April 9, in a manner that made the female occupant fear for her safety. That alleged incident led to the criminal harassment charge, and he is accused of breaking into the same home on April 9, where he allegedly assaulted a woman and a man.
The charges were not revealed at the time by Tabbara or Guelph Police Service, and did not become public until June 6 after the National Post and two other media organizations reported on them. None of the allegations against Tabbara have been proven in court.
