POLICE RELEASE SKETCH OF SUSPICIOUS PERSON
Police have released an artist’s sketch of a suspect wanted for questioning in a recent case of a suspicious person attempting to pick up a child from a daycare in the Village of Russell.
On September 4, staff at the daycare facility operating on the Russell Public School grounds prevented a man from taking a child from the daycare. Staff checked and confirmed there was no prior approval from any parent for their child to leave the daycare except with their parents.
The following day, police received a report of a suspicious vehicle following a child biking along Concession Street and Craig Street in Russell village. The vehicle was an older model black car with dark-tinted windows, which prevented identification of the driver. Police do not know at present if the two “suspicious person” incidents are related.
Police have now released an artist’s composite sketch, based on the description of the man in the daycare incident (see photo). He is described as a white male, about five-foot-nine, well-built, 35 to 40 years old, with about a week’s growth of facial hair, and tattoos on both arms. He speaks English without an accent and at the time wore a plaid T-shirt.
Anyone who can identify the person of interest in the first case, based on the composite sketch, can call Det-Constable Michael Cunning at 613-443-4499 or email email@example.com, or phone CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Quiconque reconnaît la personne sur le croquis peut appeler la Police provinciale de l’Ontario (PPO.
