Police make arrest and lay charges in relation to multiple incidents of Intimate Partner Violence

Release Date: November 21, 2023



On November 20, 2023, police learned of multiple incidents of intimate partner violence, involving the victim, that had been perpetrated by the accused over a span of approximately eight months.


The victim and the accused had been in a relationship since 2015 and had recently separated. On one occasion in early 2023 the two had engaged in an argument at a downtown business. This argument escalated and the accused proceeded to assault the victim before deliberately dumping an alcoholic beverage on them.


During the month of October 2023, the two argued again, which resulted in the accused pushing the victim and spitting on their face.


In mid-November, during a separate verbal altercation between the two parties, the accused threatened to cause bodily harm to the victim. The accused further indicated that they would destroy the victim’s residence.


On November 20, after learning of the various offences that had been committed, police attended the residence of the accused, located in Kingston’s north end. Police located the accused at their residence and, at approximately 5:00 p.m., placed them under arrest.


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


A 31-year-old individual from the Kingston area was charged with two counts of assault, uttering threats to cause bodily harm and uttering threats to cause property damage.
