Individual arrested and charged after threatening an acquaintance with a knife and wounding a dog



On June 26, 2024, the accused attended a Larchwood Crescent address, located in Kingston’s west end, with their dog, at the invitation of the victim. The accused had made plans to stay overnight at the victim’s residence that evening.


At approximately 3:00 a.m. on June 27, 2024, the accused became aggravated and began yelling at the victim. The victim was able to appease the accused and the tensions finally dissipated.


The accused awoke at approximately 12:00 p.m. and, for a second time, confronted the victim in their bedroom and began to yell at them. This time both the victim’s dog, as well as the dog belonging to the accused, began to growl. As the tensions escalated the dog belonging to the accused lunged and bit at them. The accused responded by punching their own dog in the head and then also attempted to strike the victim’s dog.


The accused was bitten multiple times by their own dog as they exited the room and then attended the kitchen where they retrieved a knife. The accused returned to the room and threatened the victim with the knife.


The victim demanded that the accused, who at this point was acting very aggressively, leave their residence. The accused continued to yell at the victim and then stabbed/slashed multiple times at the victim’s dog’s head, cutting their muzzle. The accused then took the victim’s phone and left the residence on foot.


At 12:25 p.m., police received multiple calls from the public regarding a dog bite victim who was acting irrationally at the corner of Bayridge Drive and Princess Street. The accused, however, fled the scene prior to police arrival.


The victim’s dog was checked at the scene and did not require veterinarian care for the small cuts that the accused had inflicted with the knife.


At approximately 4:15 p.m., members of the Kingston Police Street Crime Unit subsequently located and arrested the accused in the area of Jane Avenue and Avenue Road. 


The accused was transported to police headquarters where they were held to attend a bail hearing the following day.


A 51-year-old local individual was charged with assault with a weapon, wounding a dog, uttering threats to cause death and theft under $5000.
