On Monday February 14, 2011 at approximately 11 a.m. officers responded to a domestic- related incident in the vicinity of Westney Road and Rossland Road in Ajax. The female complainant greeted officers and indicated her ex-husband was in the residence contrary to his probation order to remain away from the home.
