Kingston Police are currently investigating a case of unwanted sexual contact that occurred in early September, and are asking anyone with information to come forward.
The victim was sitting on a bench on the south side of City Hall at approximately 7:50 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018. A man, whom the victim did not know, approached her and introduced himself as Steven. He claimed to work in military intelligence, according to a press release from Kingston Police.
The man then sat down next to the victim and made unwanted sexual contact. When the victim broke free of the man, she fled from the scene. The man did not follow. Police were called and the area was checked, but the male was not located.
The man is described as a Caucasian between the ages of 20 and 30. He stands approximately 6 feet tall, with an average build, and dark, short stubbly hair. He had facial hair stubble, and an oval, pudgy face, and spoke with a strong French-Canadian accent. On the day in question, the suspect was wearing a grey shirt with the red Superman logo on it, and possible shorts. He allegedly runs daily in the area.
