Woman Attacks Ex’s New Girlfriend with Baseball Bat
Release Date: May 10, 2018
A 31-year-old local woman has been arrested after attacking her ex’s new girlfriend with a baseball bat.
On May 9, 2018 at approximately 9:30 p.m. the victim drove to a mid-town residence to meet her boyfriend. As she parked in front of the address an unknown vehicle pulled up in front of her and the accused exited with a baseball bat. The accused swung the bat at the victim’s driver side window, smashing through it and striking the victim in the elbow. The accused then left and police were called. Officers learned the accused had also smashed out windows in a truck belonging to the ex’s father earlier in the day.
At approximately 10:00 p.m. a patrol officer located the accused exiting a vehicle on Sutherland Drive. The accused was belligerent, but arrested without incident. She was transported to police headquarters and held to attend a bail hearing the following day.
The accused was charged with assault with a weapon, and two counts of mischief.
Release Date: May 10, 2018
Kingston Police in partnership with the Ontario Provincial police and other municipal law enforcement agencies have received and rendered safe hundreds of weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition during a month-long Gun Amnesty.
In April 2018, Kingston Police recovered 82 firearms including 16 handguns, 27 shotguns, and 39 rifles. In total 2192 firearms were voluntarily surrendered to the OPP and all Ontario police services that participated in the month-long initiative.
A majority of firearms that have been surrendered to police will be destroyed, but a number of guns will be retained for historical, educational or training purposes. Although the gun amnesty has officially ended, police will continue to accept submissions from the public. Interested gun owners who reside in Kingston may call Kingston Police at 613-549-4660, for those in other jurisdiction’s please call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or your local police service’s non-emergency lines to arrange for officers to attend and safely retrieve the weapons.
Police continue to encourage members of the public to turn in unwanted weapons despite the conclusion of this initiative. Police retain the ability to exercise discretion (amnesty) regarding weapons related charges at all times, not just during this month long event. The public is reminded that no one should ever deliver guns, ammunition or military ordinance directly to police facilities.
