Kingston Police have charged a local woman after a violent robbery early Sunday morning.

Police said that the incident started at about 6 a.m. along the railway tracks just west of the Collins Bay Road crossing. A CN Rail employee was operating rig equipment when a strange woman suddenly jumped inside his booth.

The woman appeared to be in some form of distress. She was yelling and screaming at him before quickly leaving the booth and jumping off of the slow-moving rig.

She then ran to another CN employee’s truck nearby and tried to get in. When she couldn’t, she approached a vehicle stopped near the crossing.

Police said she initially spoke to the woman driving, but then jumped into the vehicle through the open passenger-side window. Once inside, she started to hit and strike the driver.

A CN employee saw the attack and ran over to help. He helped the driver escape her vehicle and the assault, but the vehicle, still in gear, started to roll away.

The attacker then jumped into the driver’s seat and drove off, south on Collins Bay Road and then west on Bath Road.

When Kingston Police officers arrived, they searched the area, but the woman and the stolen vehicle were gone.

As the woman headed into the Ontario Provincial Police’s jurisdiction, local police informed them of the incident. They provided a description of the stolen vehicle and the woman.

At 9:30 a.m., the OPP in Picton let Kingston Police know that the woman had turned herself into their detachment.

The 48-year-old local woman was transported to Kingston Police Headquarters and charged with robbery with violence and being unlawfully at large. She spent the night in police custody to await bail court on Monday.

Flower pots stolen from business

Kingston Police are searching for two women after flower pots were stolen from in front of a business in early July.

Police said in a news release that on July 4 at about 2:35 p.m. a woman was captured by surveillance cameras out front of a business on Progress Avenue. The woman is then seen stealing two large flower pots that were on display out in front of the business.

On July 12, at about 11:50 p.m., two women are captured on camera at the same business taking the two remaining flower pots.

The surveillance cameras are posted inside the business and the glare from the windows makes it difficult to make out the suspects’ identifying features.

Police suspect the first woman was also involved in the second theft.

The total value of the four pots was approximately $200.

The first woman is described as being Caucasian with a medium-to-heavy build. She has long hair, which is shaved on each side of her head. She appeared to have multiple tattoos on her chest, hand, and forearm.
