HRPS Looking for Help Identifying Suspicious Males

By: Laura Steiner
Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) is looking for help identifying three suspicious males on two separate occasions.
In the morning of October 15, between 10:55 and 11:35 am one male was seen in the driver’s seat of a mid-sized black four-door Mercedes with tinted windows parked on Clark Blvd near Hawthorne Village Public School.  He was allegedly taking photos of children.
On October 18 at exactly the same time the suspect returned to the area and parked in the same spot with two other male passengers.  The driver offered candy to a child.  The vehicle drove away after being approached by school staff.  The descriptions are as follows:

  • Driver: a 21-year old male with short dark hair
  • Passenger 1: Described by eye witnesses as a white male wearing a black  shirt with a white snake-like pattern on the sleeves.
  • There is no description of the second passenger.
