Kingston police are investigating an incident of assault and bodily harm in the student hub on Aug. 3 at approximately 2 a.m. 

Two brothers were about to purchase some food around Princess and Division Street when three unknown men approached them. 

According to a statement from Kingston police, the trio “seemed to be looking for trouble as they had been calling out to random people trying to pick a fight.”

The brothers didn’t provoke the men, but one suspect pushed one of the brothers to the ground. When the older brother intervened, he was punched in the face, resulting in injury. 

The suspects are 17-24 years of age and are described as Caucasian. Of the three suspects, two were possibly brothers because of similarities in appearance and large build.

Anyone with information about the incident should contact Detective Jamie Graham at 613-549-4660 ext. 6311 or via email at jgraham@kingstonpolice.ca.
