Police believe a man followed the couple to their residence from a business in the south end of the city after an argument.

As they arrived home, a man ran his vehicle into the couple’s vehicle before driving away, police said.

The couple got out of the vehicle, and the man came back in his vehicle.

The male tried to stop the vehicle from leaving the area and the man hit him with his vehicle. The man then struck the female with his vehicle before driving away, police said.

With a description of the man and the vehicle, officers found a suspect close by, still in his vehicle, police said.

A 19-year-old London man is charged with dangerous operation of a vehicle causing bodily harm, failing to stop at the scene of an accident that caused bodily harm, and criminal harassment.

He has been released and is to appear in court March 5, police said.
