Two sexual assaults occur near campus

Two recent sexual assaults near campus are believed to be connected, according to the Kingston Police.

The assaults occurred early on Saturday morning. Between 2:30 and 3 a.m., a woman was groped by a male as she entered a parking lot around the area of Johnson and Alfred Streets. The perpetrator fled the scene after the woman screamed.

At 2:40 a.m., a second woman was groped by a man near Brock and Albert Streets. Following a short struggle, the pair fell and the suspect continued to assault her. The suspect fled after the woman shouted.

The suspect in both assaults was described similarly. Police are asking citizens to look out for a white male, aged 18-25 years old, approximately 6’0” tall and 190 lbs with fair features, short hair and a clean-shaven face. He was reported to be wearing a baseball cap, hoodie, dark jacket with a possible camouflage pattern, jeans and “skater-type” shoes, but the Kingston Police said the description is “not absolute.”

Two males are thought to have seen the second assault transpire and are asked to come forward.

Anyone with information is please asked to contact Detective Nadine Legare at 613-549-4660 ext 6274 or via email at nlegare@kpf.ca.
