Kingston Police have arrested two local teenagers, a 19-year-old and 17-year-old, within 24 hours of two violent incidents. Both accused are now facing charges including aggravated assault, robbery and attempt murder.

On April 9, 2018 at approximately 5:15 p.m. the victim and a friend walked down an alleyway between First Avenue and Concession Street to meet two other males. As the group met up the two 19-year-old and 17-year-old accused appeared. The 19-year-old brandished an aluminum bat and struck the victim in the head. The males that had been waiting to meet the victim and his friends fled while the 19-year-old struck the victim again. The two accused then stole the victims backpack, wallet and cellphone before fleeing on foot.

Police were called and found the victim laying in the alley suffering from severe injuries. Frontenac Paramedics responded and transported the victim to hospital where he remains in critical condition.

On April 10, 2018 at approximately 1:00 a.m. the victim was at his residence on Newmarket Lane when the two accused whom he knew through friends showed up at his door. The victim invited the two accused into the garage. The group began smoking marijuana as the two accused told the victim about their earlier attack. The two accused then suddenly attacked the victim, punching him and smashing bongs over his head before wrapping a tee-shirt around the victim’s neck in an attempt to choke him. The two accused robbed the victim of his wallet and cellphone before fleeing when another residence heard the commotion and opened the door. The victim suffered injuries requiring medical attention.

At approximately 2:45 p.m. in response to social media posts police received information that the 17-year-old suspect was in the area of John Counter Boulevard and Montreal Street. Officers responded and after a short foot pursuit the youth was arrested.

At approximately 5:00 p.m. a patrol officer spotted the 19-year-old suspect in the area of Montreal Street and Raglan Road. The officer stopped and arrested Josh Owen Simpson without incident.

Wanted Man Returns to Assault Common-Law Once Again

Release Date: April 11, 2018

18-10390 / 18-12999 / 18-5494

A 33-year-old local man who was wanted for assaulting his common-law was caught after her returned to her residence and assaulted her again.

On April 10, 2018 at approximately 10:15 p.m. police responded to a north end apartment for a report of a domestic in progress. Information received was that a female inside was being hit and a male was overheard threatening to hit her again. Officers breached the door to the apartment after no one answered repeated door knocks. The victim was found bleeding from an injury to her face while carrying a baby. The accused was found hiding under blankets and arrested.

Further investigation revealed the accused was already wanted for assaulting the victim in March 2018. During an argument over the victim wanting to have family visit the accused struck her in the face and stole her cell phone. Police also learned that another previous incident in February 2018 had in fact been more than a verbal argument and the accused had assaulted the victim on that date as well.

The accused was transported to police headquarters where he was held to attend a bail hearing the following day.

The accused was charged with three counts of assault, theft, five counts of breach probation.
