Kingston, Ont. police are asking residents in the university district to be vigilant following reports of a trespasser threatening residents in their homes.

Police say the first incident happened on Jan. 9, around 1:45 a.m., when people inside a home on Division Street woke up to a man yelling threats and vulgarities at them from outside the house.

The man did not try to enter the building and eventually left, Kingston police say.

Two days later, around 9 p.m. on Jan. 11, residents in a University Avenue apartment reported hearing a man “speaking belligerently” through their window.

That man eventually left too, without incident.
