Individual resists arrest and faces charges after committing a robbery and break and enter



On June 10, 2024, at approximately 9:15 a.m., police responded to a call regarding a robbery that had just taken place at an establishment in the 700 block of Montreal Street in the City of Kingston.


Further investigation revealed that the accused had attended this location, prior to the establishment opening for the day, and while trying to access the front door, which was locked, had been met by one of the employees, who had indicated to them that the business was closed.


Once the door had been unlocked, the accused proceeded to push their way past the employee and entered the establishment. The employee directed the accused to leave the premises at which time the accused grabbed them and threw them against a wall. The accused then removed merchandise from behind a counter. After trying unsuccessfully to access other merchandise, which was locked behind the counter, the accused then left the premises.


Police located the accused outside of the establishment on the sidewalk. The accused yelled at the arriving officer and was acting highly agitated, walking towards police with fists clenched in an aggressive manner.


Police advised the accused that they were under arrest for the robbery, and they immediately became actively resistant while pulling away from the officer. The accused aggressively flailed their arms at the officer, attempting to strike them.


The accused continued to resist officers throughout the arrest, however, they were ultimately taken into custody and subsequently transported to police headquarters where they were held to attend a bail hearing the following day.


Jonathon GORDON, a 39-year-old local individual, was charged with robbery with violence, break and enter to a place other than a dwelling with intent and resisting arrest.
