Home invasion in Kingston west end

There was a heavy Kingston Police response to the new Woodhaven subdivision in Kingston’s west end shortly before 11:00 p.m. Thursday night after two suspects allegedly invaded a home and brandished knives at the occupants.

The two brothers, aged 17 and 18, invaded the home on Tremont Drive but were confronted by another sibling, who had been visiting at the residence, said Kingston Police constable Cam Mack. The sibling asked the two suspects to leave the home, which they did, but once outside the conflict, which originated from a dispute over money owed, continued to escalate. The residents of the home then locked themselves safely inside and contacted Kingston Police.

Police were able to quickly resolve the conflict once on scene and all but one of the responding units were clear of the scene before midnight.

Both accused were transported to police headquarters where they were held to attend a bail hearing the following day.

The 18-year-old accused was charged with forcible entry, two counts of assault with a weapon, uttering threats, and four counts of fail to comply with YCJA probation order. The 17-year-old accused was charged with forcible entry, uttering threats, and possession of a weapon.
