Kingston police are investigating three separate incidents in recent weeks that may be connected.

Police say they received an initial report two weeks ago from a homeowner in the 900 block of Pembridge Crescent. The homeowner reported that on May 13, at approximately 1:30 a.m. their dog started to growl at the patio door, which was off of the bedroom.

The resident then noticed a small red light, the size of a laser pointer without the dot, directed into the room from outside. When the homeowner turned on their bedroom light, they heard someone running off of their back deck.
