Kingston Police are urging a suspect involved in a violent altercation in downtown Kingston to turn himself in.
The incident took place on the night of Sunday, Oct. 25, 2020, and began with a verbal disagreement inside Tommy’s Diner, located on Princess Street near the Barrie Street intersection. Those involved agreed to go outside to settle the disagreement physically and, once outside, a physical fight ensued.
A male involved sustained serious injuries and was treated by Frontenac Paramedics before being transported to Kingston General Hospital. Kingston Fire and Rescue also responded to the incident. Those on scene the night of the incident reported that the injured party had fallen as the result of the fight and hit his head on a concrete barrier, possibly rendering him unconscious.
According to the Kingston Police Criminal Investigations Department, two male suspects have been identified in connection with the fight, one of whom, a 19-year-old, has already been arrested. The second male suspect remains outstanding.
“Police would encourage this male to turn himself into the Kingston Police,” Kingston Police said in an email to Kingstonist on Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2020.
The investigation into this incident remains ongoing.
