PORT DOVER - 

A Norfolk man was arrested and charged  after a 91-year-old woman was found at a home suffering from neglect.

On Jan. 27, Norfolk OPP were asked to look in on a woman at a home on St. John’s Road East, north of Port Dover. After police arrived, an ambulance was called and the woman was taken to hospital.

On Thursday, police charged a 53-year-old man with failing to provide the necessities of life. The accused will answer the charge in the Ontario Court of Justice in Simcoe at a later date.
