Kingston police are continuing an investigation into an incident that happened during St. Patrick’s Day parties in the University District Saturday.

A police officer was injured while attempting to make an arrest when a container of alcohol was thrown at the officer’s head.

Police say that moments before the container was thrown, the officer was struggling to arrest a man when a magazine full of ammunition became dislodged and fell to the pavement, at which point a female partygoer quickly grabbed it and walked away with it.

The woman is described as blond and was wearing a white jacket, a green shirt with 41 on the front and a white skirt.

According to police, the woman was last seen heading west on Johnson Street with three other people shortly after the incident around 2:30 p.m.
