The stabbing that occurred on Friday, Feb. 22, 2019 has resulted in three charges, including attempted murder, for a local man.
The incident occurred at approximately 6:30 p.m. at the McDonald’s location on Division Street near Highway 401, during the Friday night dinner rush. The victim was inside the restaurant and was approached by the accused man shortly after he entered. The accused man tried to speak with the victim, but was incoherent, according to Kingston Police. The accused man then, without warning, stabbed the victim in the neck with a knife. Realizing he’d been stabbed, the victim ran behind the counter and police were immediately notified.
Kingston Police responded at approximately 6:37 p.m. and located the accused man still inside the restaurant, and still brandishing the knife. Police carried out a gunpoint arrest, at which point the accused man relinquished the knife and was taken into custody.
The 26-year-old Kingston man was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace.
