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 mi­chael.cun­ning@opp.ca, or phone Cri­meS­top­pers at 1-800-222-8477.
