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.
