A 30-year-old Kingston man has been arrested and charged after he lost his temper and attacked his roommate for nearly no reason.
On Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018, the man was allegedly upset that his computer wasn’t working properly. The victim, his female roommate, made a comment about how he treated the computer, and the accused man lunged at the victim and attacked her. The man had allegedly been drinking.
