Kingston Police had a busy day on Monday, Aug. 13, 2018, when three arrests were made in relation to three separate domestic violence cases.
The first case actually began on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2018 when the accused male and the female victim were arguing in their east end apartment. While arguing, the man threw a hard object at the victim, which struck her in the head. The mad fled the scene while the victim, who was bleeding from the wound, messaged a friend. Her friend received the message and insisted police be called, according to a press release from Kingston Police. However, when police arrived, the accused man’s whereabouts were unknown, and a warrant for his arrest was requested.
The accused man eventually turned himself in at Kingston Police headquarters on Monday, Aug. 13. The 28-year-old local man is charged with assault with a weapon and breach of probation.
The second case occurred when police responded to the report of a domestic disturbance at an east end address at approximately 7:15 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 13, 2018. The female party at the address was uncooperative and had no visible injuries. The female was arrested after officers learned she was wanted for a breach of probation, and, upon further investigation, the officers learned that the male party had assaulted the female during an argument. The male had hit and kicked the female in her back, and caused her to fall into a small pool, according to Kingston Police. The male was also arrested and both parties were taken to Kingston Police headquarters. The 51-year-old local man is charged with assault, and the 42-year-old local woman is charged with breach of probation.
In the last case, the accused man went to the victim’s west end apartment at approximately 9 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 13, 2018. The two began arguing about the man’s alleged drug use, and the man began waving around a pocket knife while making derogatory comments towards the female victim. The man then punched the victim multiple times and left the apartment.
Police were called and responding officers located the accused male in the lobby of the building. The 36-year-old Kingston man was arrested and charged with assault, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and two counts of breaching probation.
