Violent incident in Parham results in the arrest of six people
The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have arrested six people in connection with a violent incident that took place at a residence in Parham over the weekend.
Just after 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 17, 2019, officers from the Frontenac Detachment of the OPP responded to a report of a robbery with violence that took place at a Parham address. According to the OPP, six people were involved in the break and enter, which involved an imitation weapon and assault. As a result of the ensuing investigation, the OPP have charged the following individuals with one count each of assault with a weapon, break and enter to a residence, and possession of a prohibited device:
- Brandon Alport, 23, of Kingston
- Allan Towers, 51, of Central Frontenac
- Carl Towers, 50, of Central Frontenac
- Nicholas Towers, 24, of Central Frontenac
- Luke Towers, 23, of Central Frontenac
Additionally, Noah Post, 20, of Central Frontenac has been charged with assault with a weapon, break and enter to a residence, possession of a prohibited device, and possession of an imitation weapon for a dangerous purpose.
The OPP would not expand further on the violent incident, or what took place, as those details will be part of the evidence presented in court. All six parties were released on a promise to appear at a later court day in the Ontario Court of Justice in Kingston.
Editorial note: An earlier version of this article referred to the incident as a “robbery.” Police had erroneously used the word robbery in a press release, and have since issued a correction.
