A local man has been arrested and charged after a series of incidents took place on Conacher Drive in Kingston’s north end.
The incidents took place on Monday, Jan. 6, 2020 and began at approximately 8:50 a.m. when the accused man approached a mother who was walking with her two children on Conacher Drive. The man, who was unknown to the mother, proceeded to grab and hug one of the children. The mother demanded that the man let her child go, at which point he complied and walked off.
As the mother returned from dropping her children off from school, she once again saw the accused man lurking in the area, according to Kingston Police. The man tried to approach the mother again, but she entered an apartment complex and he was denied access through the locked door of the complex. Despite the door being locked, the accused man made several repeated attempts to enter the building.
Another woman, who observed the encounter as she was driving, pulled her vehicle over to the side of the road in front of the complex. There, the accused man approached the second woman and attempted to gain entry into her vehicle through the passenger’s side door. When he found the door was locked, the accused man struck the passenger’s side window with his head twice, breaking the window in doing so.
The accused man then returned to the apartment complex where he continued to try to gain entry. He was then observed pulling his pants down to his feet while committing an indecent act in full view of the witnesses. The man then walked away from the building a short distance before turning around and running head first into the locked door.
Police were contacted during the incidents and responded, arresting the accused man who was still outside of the apartment complex. Further investigation found that the man was under the influence of a controlled substance.
The 34-year-old man was charged with committing an indecent act in public, mischief under $5,000, and breach of recognizance.
