The perpetrator involved in an alleged sexual offence against a nine-year-old boy at Mississauga’s Square One Shopping Mall this past summer remains at large.

In July (2023) police say, a young boy was using a public washroom, when he was reportedly approached by the suspect, who proceeded to engage in a sexually suggestive conversation.

Investigators say the victim and suspect are unknown to each other.

Police describe the suspect as a white man, with a possibly tanned complexion. His height is anywhere between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-9. He has an average to thin build, with a full beard, braids, and dreadlock-type hair.

The suspect was last seen wearing black pants, a black t-shirt with an unknown logo, and distinctive red ‘Air Force One’ type shoes.

Authorities say the suspect is wanted for the invitation of sexual touching.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Special Victims Unit at  905-453–2121, extension 3460.
