On January 31, 2023 at approximately 6:10 p.m. Kingston Police attended the Queen’s Centre at Queen’s University in response to a complaint of the male accused being found by Campus Security and Emergency Services lying down on the floor inside one of the woman’s bathrooms. Police, upon arrival, issued a provincial offences notice under the Trespass to Property Act to the accused and escorted him from the property.

At approximately 6:50 p.m. on this same date, the accused returned to the Queen’s Centre and proceeded to touch two female victims in an inappropriate sexual manner. A short time later the accused attended Stauffer Library and entered a woman’s bathroom where he proceeded to touch another victim inappropriately from under an adjoining bathroom stall.

Campus security located the accused in the women's washroom in Stauffer Library and brought Kingston Police to him. The accused was found sitting in a bathroom stall inside the woman’s bathroom.

The accused was arrested and a search subsequent to his arrest revealed that he was in possession of a small baggie containing a substance suspected of being cocaine. The accused was transported to police headquarters where he was held to attend a bail hearing the following day. The accused was then remanded into custody on February 1, 2023.
