Wanted Man Arrested after Approaching Officer for a Boost

Release Date: May 4, 2018


A 29-year-old local man is facing multiple charges after he damaged the complainant’s property and then intentionally rammed her vehicle.

On April 28, 2018 at approximately 5:00 p.m. the accused and the complainant began arguing over the status of their relationship while in her vehicle. During the argument the accused stomped on the complainant’s cellphone, slammed the vehicle door on the phone, and then smashed a mirror that had been given to the complainant by a family member.

Sometime later the complainant was on her patio at her west end residence when she observed the accused pull into the parking lot. The accused then backed up at a high rate of speed and smashed into the front of the complainant’s parked car causing extensive damage. The accused drove away and police were called. The accused whereabouts were unknown and a warrant was issued.

On May 3, 2018 officers responded to an unrelated call at a business on Front Road. On arrival the officer observed a male in a damaged vehicle with the hood up. The male approached the officer to enquire about a boost for a dead battery. The officer identified the male and found he was the wanted party from the April 28 incident.

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

The accused was charged with three counts of mischief, and leave accident scene.

If you have been sexually assaulted or abused and are uncertain what to do, please attend the hospital and see the caring and compassionate staff at the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence clinic (SADV). The staff can help you with counselling and coping strategies in addition to providing testing for sexually transmitted diseases and providing access to HIV medication. If you are willing the staff will also complete the sexual assault evidence kit. Evidence can be collected up to twelve days following a sexual assault. Depending on the circumstances it may be possible for DNA evidence to be obtained from clothing after it has been washed. Your confidentiality is guaranteed and police will only be contacted by the hospital if you request it at the time. The SADV clinic will store the contents of the kit for a preliminary period of 6 months which offers a victim time to gather information on the process and decide on how they want to proceed.

Kingston Police want to alert citizens to suspicious activity regarding men begging and pleading for money to buy fuel.

Reports have been received of two men that have approached citizens in local parking lots and even attempted to stop motorists on Highway 401 ramps.

On some incidents the men have offered jewelry as collateral if the citizen will go to an ATM machine to get money. The jewelry is believed to be fake and in one incident the men put the fake jewelry on a citizen and then it is suspected they removed her jewelry.

The suspects were described as West Asian in appearance, with one in his 30’s and the other in his 60’s. They have been seen in a silver Mercedes and a white SUV.

The men tend to target elderly persons, but if anyone is approached by men acting in this manner, please attempt to obtain a licence plate and contact police as soon as possible.
