An argument between a 27-year-old local man and his father at their family home turned violent in the early hours of Wednesday, Apr. 6, 2022.
At approximately 1 a.m. on that same date, the accused male returned home to the residence that he lived at with his father, the victim, located north of Highway 401 in the City of Kingston.
According to a release from Kingston Police, the two had, earlier in the day, engaged in an argument that led to the accused damaging the victim’s car. Upon his return to the residence, he again argued with his father who indicated that he was no longer permitted to reside at the residence, police said.
This enraged the accused who, according to police, proceeded to become violent with the victim by pulling him outside the residence, assaulting him and then choking him to near unconsciousness. According to the release, the accused then entered the residence and locked the door, preventing his father from entering his own home.
Police said that the accused began to damage property inside the residence. He damaged computer equipment, smashed a computer monitor, and broke a mirror and a lamp, according to the release. A bedroom door had also been damaged during the incident.
At approximately 1:25 a.m. police were able to speak with the accused who was subsequently arrested for the offences that he had committed. He was transported to police headquarters where he was held to attend a bail hearing the following day.
The accused was charged with assault and mischief under $5000.
