Man charged with allegedly threatening parking officer
Toronto police arrested a man Monday for allegedly threatening a parking enforcement officer.
According to police, the man received a parking ticket last Thursday and then called the Toronto Police Services Parking Enforcement West Unit to complain.
During the phone call, the man allegedly made threats towards the officer who wrote the ticket.
Rui Gomes, 46, has been charged with threatening death and threatening bodily harm.
He is scheduled too appear in court next Tuesday.
Another parking enforcement officer was allegedly assaulted earlier this month.
On Sept. 4 at 7:20 p.m., the officer issued a ticket for truck that was allegedly parked illegally on Haimer Avenue.
"The owner of the truck approached the PEO and punched him in the face, causing him to fall to the ground," police alleged in a Sept. 7 news release.
Staford Wright, 67, of Toronto has been charged with assault. His court date has been set for Oct. 11.
No allegations against either Wright or Gomes have been proven in a court of law.
