A man removed from a woman’s home by Kingston Police on Wednesday returned despite the locks being changed.

The police said in a news release that they received a complaint about a man refusing to leave a residence in the east end of Kingston at about 11:40 a.m.

The resident was fearful  of the man and was unable to return home until the man was gone. Officers went to the home and spoke with the man, but he became enraged. When the officers warned him about trespassing, he left.

The residence’s locks were changed by property management and officers cleared the residence.

At about 1:30 p.m., police returned to the home to make sure it was still secure, but they found the man inside. He began yelling at the officers and became aggressive. Officers were required to use force to arrest the man when he became combative.

A 44-year-old local man is charged with unlawfully being in a dwelling and assaulting police. He spent the night in police custody to attend bail court on Thursday.
