Suspect sought in robbery of young girl at Kanata North Recreation Complex/Safety advisory
(Ottawa)— The Ottawa Police Service Robbery Unit is investigating a recent robbery of a young girl at the Kanata North Recreation Complex and is seeking the public’s assistance to identify the suspect responsible.
On Friday, March 3, 2017, at approximately 6:30 pm, a 10 years old female was in a family changing room at the above-mentioned location as her parent waited outside the door. When the young girl exited a changing cubicle, she was confronted by a lone male suspect, who then made a demand for the bag she was carrying. The suspect took the bag, but then tossed it aside before fleeing the scene. At one point during a short struggle for the bag, the suspect pushed the victim backward, causing her to fall and strike her head. The victim sustained a minor injury that did not necessitate specialized treatment.
The suspect is described as being a Caucasian male, approximately 5’6” (168 cm), slim build, approximately 35-45 years of age, short dark hair, English speaking with no accent. At the time he was wearing a ski mask or similar, black jeans, and a black & grey jacket (hip length). The suspect may have a tattoo of the head of a wolf, or similar, on the underside of his right wrist.
Efforts are ongoing to obtain any images of the suspect. If images are obtained, a follow-up may be issued.
Anyone with information regarding this robbery, this suspect, or any robbery, is asked to call the Ottawa Police’s Robbery Unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5116.
