A 21-year old man from Kingston is facing numerous charges for several sexual assaults that took place on the Queen’s University campus this week and for drug possession.
The arrest came out of a complaint that Kingston Police received on January 31st 2023 at around 6:10pm.
“At the time [of the report], Queen’s Campus Security and Emergency Services saw a man 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,” said Police.
Not long after, at around 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. The suspect later made his way to 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.
According to Police, Dustin Lindsay, a 21-year-old local man, had no affiliation to Queen’s University, was charged with three counts of sexual assault, unlawfully possessing a Schedule 1 substance, and two counts of breach of probation.
