Kingston Police have released the above image and are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a male wanted on numerous intimate partner violence charges.
The charges stem from an incident that occurred on Saturday, Sept. 4, 2021, on Kingsdale Avenue, according to a release from Kingston Police, dated Wednesday, Sept. 15, 2021.
On the above date, the accused, Paul MacDonald, attended the residence of his girlfriend, the victim, who refused him entry to her home as he had taken drugs and alcohol on this occasion, according to the release. MacDonald remained in front of the residence and was eventually allowed access by another family member. Police said that once inside the residence an argument ensued with the victim and, after following her to an upstairs bedroom, he proceeded to strike her in the head numerous times with closed fists. MacDonald then pulled out a knife that he had in his possession and proceeded to slash at the victim who was finally able to escape from the home, at which time police were contacted, according to the release.
Police responded and searched extensively for MacDonald but were unable to locate him. His current whereabouts are unknown.
The victim sustained numerous facial injuries and lacerations to her body as a result of the attack and was later transported to Kingston General Hospital for treatment.
MacDonald is currently being sought on charges of assault, assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace, uttering threats to cause death, and theft under $5,000.
