Peterborough man arrested for assaults and threats in motel parking lot
A Peterborough man has been arrested and charged after assaulting and threatening two men at Kingston Motel West on Thursday, May 30, 2019.
The accused man approached the two male victims in the parking lot of Kingston Motel West at approximately 2 a.m. According to Kingston Police, the accused was angered that the two victims had woke him up while they attempted to unpack their belongings into their room.
The accused, without provocation, assaulted the first victim by pushing him to the ground. The accused then punched him twice in the face as he attempted to stand back up. The victims attempted to reason with the accused, who then punched the second victim in the head. The accused then threatened to kill the two victims if they called the police.
Fearing further reprisal, the two victims attended the motel lobby and police were contacted. The accused confronted the two victims in the lobby and, enraged that they had called police, proceeded to elbow the second victim in the head.
Police attended the scene and arrested the accused who showed signs of being intoxicated. The accused, who was still demonstrating aggressive behavior toward police, was then transported to police headquarters where he was held to attend a bail hearing the following day.
The 32-year-old Peterborough man was charged with two counts of assault, and uttering threats.
