Grade six student reports being offered a ride home

Yesterday afternoon, police responded to Thamesville Area Central School in regards to a suspicious person.

A grade six student reported that on April 2 around 8 p.m. while roller blading home from a school function in the rain, an older man stopped and asked if he needed a ride home. The boy declined the man’s offer and continued roller blading home. The man drove away and was last seen in the Wallace and Jane Street area.

The man had brownish gray hair and a white beard. He was driving an older black Jeep with rust on it.

Police are asking anyone with information that may help identify either the man or vehicle to call constable Deb Lafreniere at or 519-436-6600 extension #87142.
