Errington residents warned about prowler

Two incidents within the same neighbourhood on the same night reported

Police are urging Errington residents to be on their guard after two area homeowners forced an unidentified man to flee from their homes.

Oceanside RCMP Corporal Jesse Foreman reported the incidents happened on Monday, Oct. 22, with the first taking place just after 9 a.m. at a home near Tyler Road and Errington Road.

“The first call was from a resident who had returned home to find an unknown man in her kitchen,” Foreman reported. “When she yelled at him, the man dropped items he had stolen and fled out the door.”

The second call was from a homeowner who heard a noise at her front door.

“When she went to investigate, she found a man trying to gain access to her home,” Foreman reported. “The man was described very similarly in both instances: Caucasian, with short sandy blond, crew cut style hair. The man had a crooked nose and was wearing a grey sweater with a camouflage jacket and red and black shorts.”

The RCMP investigation is ongoing. If you have any information regarding these incidents you are urged to call the Oceanside RCMP at 250-248-6111 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8847.
