Kingston Police have reported the arrest of a man accused of separate sexual assaults in the Queen’s University district:
A 19-year-old man of no fixed address is facing numerous charges after sexually assaulting three women between 18 and 24 years of age within a span of 10 minutes.
On December 5, 2017 at approximately 9:30 p.m. the first victim was waiting for her friend out front of an address on University Avenue in the Queen’s University Campus. The accused who is not a Queen’s Student, approached the victim from behind and put his hand on her buttocks before asking her if she wanted to have sex. The victim told him to leave or she would call for help and the accused fled.
At approximately 9:40 p.m. the next two victims were walking on Barrie Street in the Queen’s University Campus when the accused began following them. As the two entered a pathway in the City Park located at 90 Kings St East the accused approached from behind and violently wrapped his arms around them. One female broke free while the other fell to the ground with the accused on top of her. After a brief struggle the second female broke free and both women fled and called police.
Officers were able to respond quickly to the area and located the accused laying on the ground in the park. The accused was uncooperative with police and attempted to spit at and kick the arresting officers.
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 sexual assault, resist arrest and two counts of breach probation.
