Bladed Pole Robbery Leads to Charges

A Kingston man, 31, is charged with robbery and possession of a dangerous weapon in connection with an incident late last week.

Police believe the man entered a downtown restaurant just after 11:00 pm last Wednesday, and swung a bladed pole at a staff member before fleeing with the cash register.

Fortunately no one was hurt, and the man was arrested at a Russell Street home Sunday morning.
