Police request public’s assistance in identifying a suspect involved in early morning sexual assault

Release Date: May 31, 2023



Kingston Police are investigating a sexual assault which occurred in Churchill Park overnight. Churchill Park is located between Brock Street, Napier Street, Regent Street and Mack Street. 


Just prior to 2:00 a.m. on May 31, 2023, a lone 20 year old female was walking on Regent Street when she encountered a male unknown to her that appeared unhoused. The female offered the man some food and then proceeded to walk through Churchill Park. This male then followed her into the park and sexually assaulted her. The assault was interrupted by another citizen, which caused the male suspect to flee the area on foot in a Northeast direction through the park. This incident was then reported to the police.


The initial search for the suspect was unsuccessful and the victim was taken to the hospital for treatment. 


The suspect description is a Caucasian male who walked with a noticeable limp with short brown hair and wearing a red t-shirt. Further descriptors may become available as the investigation progresses as interviews are still being completed.
