Kingston Police have arrested and charged a 28-year-old individual after being called to a residence for assistance after choking incidents.

According to a release from Kingston Police, on Tuesday, Apr. 23, 2024, at approximately 3 p.m. an incident involving Intimate Partner Violence occurred at a residence on Sunnyside Road in the City of Kingston.

“The accused and the victim were at the victim’s residence when a verbal argument ensued between both parties. During this argument, the accused entered the kitchen and began to throw items from the refrigerator,” Kingston Police detailed.

“The victim requested that the accused stop throwing the food items from the refrigerator, at which time the accused approached in an aggressive manner and assaulted the victim. The accused then proceeded to hold the victim down, while choking them, and uttered a death threat.”

According to the release, a short time later the accused again assaulted the victim in a similar manner in a separate room of the residence. The following morning at approximately 8 a.m. the victim reportedly called the police for assistance. The accused observed this call and, once again, assaulted the victim by choking them, police said.

Officers quickly attended the residence and at approximately 8:05 a.m. the accused was located and arrested. Kingston Police subsequently transported the accused to police headquarters where they were held to attend a bail hearing the following day.
