Windsor Police are investigating after receiving a complaint of suspicious behaviour in the area of Assumption and Gladstone last week.
Last Wednesday May 9th, a 26-year-old woman attended Police Headquarters and reported that at 5:45am on that date, she had been waiting for a transit Windsor Bus at the corner of Assumption Street at Gladstone Avenue, and as she waited at the bus stop, a man approached her and attempted to engage the woman in a conversation. The woman told the man that she wasn’t interested in speaking with him, and after that, the man began making sexually suggestive comments to the woman. He also pulled his pants down and exposed his genitals to her. An approaching Transit Windsor Bus scared the man off and he was last seen running from the scene westbound on Assumption Street
The suspect was described as a black male with a very dark complexion, 5’10 – 6′ tall and 150 lbs. He had a “skinny” build and was approximately 40 years of age. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black dress pants, white boxer shorts and no shoes or socks.
The subsequent investigation into the incident revealed that on May 8th another woman had observed a man of similar description staring at her from behind a tree in the 400 block of Lincoln Road.
The suspect described in this incident matched the above described man and in addition, he had very short hair or a shaved head and he was wearing a waist length leather jacket, black running shoes with no laces or socks.
Anyone with any information regarding these incidents or the suspect to call the Special Victims Unit at 519-255-6700 ext. 4307 or anonymously to Crime stoppers at 519-258-TIPS(8477).
