A Kingston man is facing multiple charges after he ignored the requests of his girlfriend’s housemate and then assaulted and threatened her in her own home.
The accused man helped his girlfriend move into the female victim’s west end residence on Friday, Jul. 26, 2019. At the time, the victim made it clear to the accused man that only his girlfriend was allowed to reside with her, according to Kingston Police.
The following evening, the accused man became enraged with the victim after attending the residence and attempting to prepare dinner. The victim had briefly moved his food from the microwave area, and the accused man became agitated, threatening both the victim and her family member. The man then assaulted the victim, hitting her in the face.
When the victim ran to hide under a pull-out couch, the accused man began jumping on the couch, injuring the victim’s back. According to police, while the accused man was distracted momentarily, the victim hid behind a door, but the accused man then threw a television and laptop at her, damaging both devices. The accused then wrapped a cord around his hand and threatened to choke the victim. To escape from the accused man, the victim jumped from her patio approximately 20 feet off the ground.
On Friday, Aug. 2, 2019, police learned of the earlier incidents and attempted to locate the accused man at this residence, but were unable to find him. After repeated attempts to locate the accused man, he finally turned himself in at Kingston Police Headquarters at approximately 9:55 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019.
The 42-year-old local man is charged with assault, uttering threats, and mischief under $5,000.
