Suspect Remains On The Loose After Thursday Night Incident
KAWARTHA LAKES-Peterborough Police are looking for a man in his 20s after a vehicle that reportedly had been stolen nearly struck a police cruiser as they tried to stop it.
According to a Peterborough Police news release at about 11:30 p.m. on June 16, an officer noticed a man acting suspiciously in a parked car. As police tried to get the licence plate number they say the driver fled the scene, narrowly missing the police vehicle. Police determined the plate did not match the reported stolen vehicle.
Police state that the driver eventually stopped near Chemong Road and Wolsely Street where he fled on foot.
A search of the area was unsuccessful.
The suspect is described as male, late 20s with a thin build and shaggy, dirty blonde hair. He had blue jeans on but was shirtless. He has a tattoo between his shoulder blades.
Police say the vehicle was returned to its owner on Friday.
Anyone who knows who the suspect is, or where he might be is asked to contact Peterborfough Police at 705-876-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.stopcrimehere.ca.
