Police still searching for suspicious man



Police are still looking for a suspicious man in Chatham in relation to an incident at George P Vanier School.

The Chatham-Kent Police Service thanked everyone who came forward with information to assist officers in identifying a man and vehicle, who was looking for directions.  Through investigation, police believe the incident from George P Vanier School is not related to the two incidents in the Madera Crescent / Daleview Avenue area.

Police have since identified the man who approached the two young children thanks to a citizen who provided dash cam footage.  It appears as though the man was lost and looking for a specific address.  The 26-year-old Chatham man has been spoken to by police regarding his suspicious actions.  Police do not believe he is a danger to children.

Police, however, are continuing their efforts to identify the suspicious man who entered George P Vanier School.   The man was described as white, 5’10”-6’0” in height with brown hair.  He was last seen wearing jeans, blue shirt with two-tone sleeves and black/burgundy straight brimmed hat.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Constable Fraser Leontowicz at fraserl@chatham-kent.ca or 519-436-6600 extension #87148.  Anonymous callers may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) and may be eligible for a cash reward.
