Police warn public after suspicious driver in van watches local children

OHSWEKEN — Six Nations Police are asking the public to be cautious after a Six Nations resident reported a suspicious vehicle at a Townline residence.

Police say on Monday afternoon at about 4pm a resident observed a white Chevrolet van which had been parked on the side of the road.  The van then pulled into a residence and parked behind a structure.  The reporting male approached the van and asked the driver what he was doing. The suspect male replied that he was looking

to buy scrap metal.

The reporting resident told police they felt the suspicious driver’s answer was “odd” as the male appeared to be sitting watching  children get off the school bus moments before.

The reporting resident told police the suspicious driver then pulled onto the  property once the children went into their respective residences. Police say the male left the area after the reporting person told him to leave.

The  van  is  described  as  a  white 2009 Chevrolet Express van with the rear windows covered up. The van is registered to a male party from North York, Ontario.

The  only  description of the male was that he spoke with a thick accent and was possibly of Asian descent.

Police say they patrolled the area but did not locate the suspect van or male. The

reporting male was advised to contact Police if the person returns.

Police  want  to  remind  Community  members  to  always  be  aware of your

surroundings. Parents should ensure they teach their children to always be vigilant  when getting on and off the school bus. If you observe something

or someone acting suspiciously, trust your instincts, move to a safe place and call police as soon as possible.

Anyone  with  information about this incident is encouraged to report any information  to the Six Nations Police at 519-445-2811 or Crime Stoppers.
