A Kingston man was arrested yesterday after striking fear into a resident, and requiring police to remove him from her home twice.
At approximately 11:40 a.m., Kingston Police received a complaint about an unwanted guest refusing to leave a residence just north of Regiopolis Notre Dame High School. According to a press release from Kingston Police, the resident was fearful and didn’t want to return to her home until the man had been removed.
Police went to the residence and spoke with the accused man, who became enraged, police said. However, after being cautioned about trespassing, the man left. The locks on the residence were changed by the property manager and the police officers left.
A short while later, police returned to the residence to ensure the address was still secure at approximately 1:30 p.m. There, they discovered the accused man inside the residence once again. The man began yelling at the police and became aggressive, and the officers were required to use force to arrest the man as he became combative.
The 44-year-old local man was arrested and is charged with being unlawfully in a dwelling, and assaulting a police officer.
