Release Date: November 20, 2023



On November 18, 2023, at approximately 2:15 p.m. police responded to a call of a disturbance in the area of Cataraqui Woods Drive and Gardiners Road in Kingston’s west end.


Police learned that while waiting in a car in the drive through line of a local restaurant the first victim was approached by the accused who was on foot in the parking lot. The accused, who had a large stick in their hands, attended the driver’s side window of the vehicle and proceeded to yell obscenities at the victim. The accused then struck the vehicle several times with the stick and then removed a valve stem cap and let air out of the victim’s tire.


A second victim, who was also waiting in the drive through line, tried to verbally intervene however, the accused then approached and struck them with the stick prior to striking their vehicle as well.


The accused then left the area travelling southbound on Gardiners Road on foot. Police located the accused who, in an attempt to evade them, ran into a nearby store. Police gave chase and arrested the accused inside the store. The accused actively resisted arrest as police attempted to take them into custody.


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


Phillip SHEPPARD, a 43-year-old local individual was charged with assault with a weapon, mischief under $5000, causing a disturbance, and resisting a peace officer.
