Kingston Police arrest male involved in multiple incidents.

Release Date: February 23, 2024



The Kingston Police are currently investigating three separate incidents which occurred on February 21, 2024.


On February 21, 2024 at approximately 3:30 p.m. the victim was looking for her lost dog in the area of Pine Street and Cherry Street. The victim approached a male and asked him if he had seen her dog. The male advised he had not seen the victim’s dog and the victim carried on.


The male then began following the victim and grabbed a toque off her head. The male then ran back to a residence on Pine Street where he gestured for the victim to enter the residence to retrieve her toque.


Fearing for her safety the victim attempted to leave, walking quickly in the other direction and across the street. The male then continued to follow the victim across the street until she began to yell, at which point the male retreated to the residence.


On February 21, 2024 at approximately 8:40 p.m. a second victim was walking in the area of Montreal Street and Charles Street. The victim was approached from behind by the same male who began asking her if he could come to her house while getting closer and closer to her. The victim declined the male’s advances and began walking away from him. The male continued to follow the victim. Fearing for her safety, the victim ran to a nearby residence. The male continuously asked to come into the residence before leaving on foot.


On February 22, 2024 at approximately 8:45 p.m. a third victim was walking her dog in the area of Montreal Street and Stephen Street when she was approached by the same male. The male began to make conversation with the victim. The victim did not engage the male and attempted to end the interaction by walking away. The male then began to touch the victim and attempted to kiss her. The victim screamed which alerted a by-stander who came to the victim’s aid. The victim then called police.


Member’s of the Kingston Police Patrol Division responded and located the male at approximately 8:55 p.m. in the area of Montreal Street and Joseph Street.


A subsequent investigation led to the discovery of the first two incidents involving the male.


A 27 year old Kingston individual was arrested and charged with assault, theft under $5000, harassment by threatening conduct and sexual assault. The male was transported to Kingston Police headquarters where he was held for a bail hearing.


The accused in this incident is described as a 27 year old black male with a medium build and approximately 5’7 in height. The accused has medium length brown hair and short dark stubble on his face.


During the first incident the male was described as wearing all black clothing. During the second and third incidents the male was described as wearing a white puffy coat.
