October 12, 2018

John Kissick, a Fine Arts professor at the University of Guelph, has been charged with assault, reports CBC. Talia Yeo, Kissick’s ex-girlfriend, reported Kissick to the police in September, two months after she had posted a video online of Kissick beating her. Yeo stated that she went to hospital with a “documented concussion,” swollen jaw, and minor bruises from the incident in the video. UoGuelph said that Kissick is on leave while the university investigates, “which is standard procedure during such a review.” Kissick did not respond to interview requests from CBC. CBC (1) | CBC (2)
