Kingston Police and Queen’s Campus Security and Emergency Service are working together to investigate two separate indecent acts that both occurred on Earl Street in the University District.

The incidents occurred on Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018, with the first occurring at approximately 9:15 p.m. on Earl Street just west of Albert Street. In that incident, the suspect exposed his genitals to a lone female. The suspect did not approach the female, or say anything, and was last seen walking eastbound on Earl Street past Albert Street. The suspect, a Caucasian male, is described as standing approximately 5’9” tall with a medium to heavy build. He was wearing a dark toque, a dark grey baggy sweatshirt, and loose fitting jeans.

The second incident occurred just 15 minutes later at 9:30 p.m., this time on Earl Street near Division Street. The suspect in that incident followed a female on Earl Street from Barrie Street to the corner of Earl and Division Streets, where he then exposed his genitals to her. The female involved that incident approached another female, and they walked together to the Queen’s Athletics and Recreation Centre (ARC). The suspect was last seen in that area and is described as having a brown complexion with a black beard covering his chin and jaw. The suspect stands approximately 5’8” tall with a normal build, and was wearing jeans and a dark coloured hoodie.

The following is a message from Queen’s Campus Security and Emergency Service:

For members of the Queen’s community the AMS Walkhome Service is available to provide accompanied walks by calling 613-533-9255 (613-533-WALK).

If you require a ‘safe walk’ from one area of campus to another after Walkhome’s hours of operation, you can contact Campus Security at 613-533-6080 or by using a campus emergency ‘blue light’ phone or any campus payphone (free to call).

Familiarize yourself with nearby campus Blue Light Emergency Phones, program the Queen’s Emergency phone number into your cell phone, and download the SeQure App to your cell phone.
