OPP Investigating Parents Concerns Regarding Suspicious Incidents In Norwood

NORTHUMBERLAND-Peterborough County OPP says officers have received calls from Norwood area residents expressing concerns over certain individuals attending areas frequented by children, making them feel uncomfortable.

In reports received from the public, the individuals were believed to be following young children towards a changeroom as well, a parent and their child were asked to enter a vehicle.

The Peterborough County OPP Crime Unit has identified the individuals and is continuing to investigate. Officers have spoken with the individuals and police say they will continue dialogue as the investigation continues.

“We ask that parents be cognisant of their children’s whereabouts and to report any suspicious activity to the OPP. Officers are investigating and the public should not take matters into their own hands.” said police.

Parents took to Facebook to warn others about a white Honda saying a “suspicious” person had been scoping out local businesses and watching or following young women.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the Peterborough County OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or you may submit your tips anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or online at www.stopcrimehere.ca.
