A 19-year-old man currently living in Sydenham has been arrested following a string of weird events involving his former roommate here in Kingston.

In April of 2018, the victim rented a room to the accused man, and soon after began noticing “concerning behaviour,” according to a press release from Kingston Police.

On Friday, Jun. 29, the victim woke up and discovered six inches of her hair had been cut off. The victim suspected her roommate was responsible and began avoiding him, police said.

On Saturday, Aug. 4, the victim came home and found that her bed, couch, and clothing had been urinated on, and some alcohol had been stolen from her room. She decided to confront her roommate, and confirmed that he was responsible. The accused roommate agreed to move out, and the two had no further contact until Thursday, Sept. 27, when the victim received an email from the accused. The email had no content, but the subject line contained an offensive statement, according to police.

On Wednesday, Oct. 3, police located and arrested the accused at his new home in Sydenham. The man is charged with assault with a weapon, theft, mischief, and making indecent telecommunications.
