Greater Sudbury Police are trying to track down a man who they allege savagely beat a woman on Jan. 8, threatening her and causing her to fear for her own life and that of her child.
That day, police say Jason Rebellato, 29, repeatedly assaulted the victim. First attacking her in one room, then dragging her by the hair to another room and beating her and choking her some more.

Police allege he then forcibly confined her. His threats caused her to fear for her life and that of her child, police report.

GSPS says Rebellato, who is on probation, is doing what he can not to get arrested. He’s facing charges of assault, overcoming resistance by choking, uttering threats, forcible confinement and breach of probation.

Rebellato stands 6-0 and weighs 200 pounds. He has blue eyes and brown hair.

Sudbury Rainbow Crime Stoppers is offering up to $2,000 for information that leads to Rebellato’s arrest. You can call toll free 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), submit tips online at, or by texting TIPSUD to CRIMES (274637).
