Red Deer RCMP investigating suspicious male
Red Deer, Alberta – Just before 7:00 a.m. today, RCMP received a complaint of a suspicious male trying to get into a residence window in the Riverside Meadows area. The RCMP were unable to locate this suspicious male.
The incident involved a male who removed a screen on a ground floor bedroom window and was knocking on the window. He left when a resident in the home told him to leave. He is described as dark skinned and wearing a black toque.
On July 23, 2016 a similar incident was reported where a male had opened an unlocked bedroom window at a basement residence in Riverside Meadows. He did not enter the residence but spoke some words to the resident who was in the bedroom. He left when told to leave. No physical description was obtained although he is described as having an accent.
The RCMP cannot confirm that these incidents are related. They are currently under investigation. In neither incident did the suspicious male enter the bedroom, nor was anyone injured.
Home owners are reminded to be diligent about securing windows; particularly ground floor windows. Motion detector lights and minimal shrubbery around windows are recommended. If you see any activity or persons that seem suspicious, report it immediately via 911.
