KINGSTON, Ont. – Police in Kingston, Ont., say they’ve arrested a suspect in a stun-gun attack earlier this year after finding him hiding in a bedroom closet.

Investigators say a warrant was issued after a person was attacked with a stun gun that looked like a flashlight in a parking lot on Oct. 24.

It’s alleged the assailant used the weapon on the alleged victim’s back over a dispute with the person’s brother.

Police say officers went to a home on Tuesday afternoon and found the man hiding in a closet.
