Woman Allegedly Bites Police Officer During Arrest

A Kingston woman, 30, has been arrested after allegedly stealing clothing from a home and biting a  police officer.

The incident happened Wednesday afternoon, when a man spotted a suspicious-looking woman leaving the Avenue Road building where he lives, and took a picture of her.
Police say the man later learned that clothing had been stolen from a unit in the building, so he shared the picture to officers.

Police crossed paths with the woman again later that night when they were called to an unspecified disturbance at a local motel.

When they tried to arrest her, Police allege she fought them, and even bit an officer in the arm.

The unnamed accused was charged with unlawfully in a dwelling house, theft, and assaulting Police.

The officer was treated for minor injuries.
