Sandy Hill res­i­dents on alert

Orleans Star - - LOCAL NEWS -

The Ottawa Po­lice Ser­vice Break & En­ter Unit is in­ves­ti­gat­ing two overnight break-ins in the Sandy Hill area.

At ap­prox­i­mately 4:35 a.m., a sus­pect en­tered into the first res­i­dence through an un­locked door. A fe­male vic­tim was awak­ened by the sus­pect in her bed­room. While of­fi­cers re­sponded to this in­ci­dent, another break-in was re­ported a few blocks away. The vic­tim was also awak­ened by the sus­pect in her bed­room. A search of the area by of­fi­cers and the canine unit was not suc­cess­ful in lo­cat­ing the sus­pect. The vic­tims were not phys­i­cally in­jured in ei­ther case.

The sus­pect is de­scribed as a dark skinned male, around 6’, medium mus­cu­lar build, bald with a beard, wear­ing a grey zip-up long sleeved sweater with a logo on the left chest area and 2 stripes at the wrist level, long khaki shorts, light coloured gym type shoes.

The Ottawa Po­lice urge res­i­dents to be dili­gent in en­sur­ing their doors and win­dows are al­ways locked.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this in­ci­dent is asked to call Crime Stop­pers or the Ottawa Po­lice

Cen­tral Break & En­ter Unit.
