On September 12 at approximately 1:30 p.m. an Avenue Road resident returned home for lunch to find a suspicious woman leaving his building.

He later learned that the woman had in fact stolen some clothing from a unit in the building. Kingston Police were called and the photo of the suspect was shown to the investigating officer. Later the same day, at approximately 9:45 p.m. Police were called to a motel on Princess Street for a disturbance. It was determined that this was the same woman responsible for the earlier theft. When the responding officer attempted to arrest her, she fought and bit his arm. She was taken into custody and transported to police headquarters where she was held to attend a bail hearing the following day.
The accused was charged with unlawfully in a dwelling house, theft, and assault Police.
