A forensic artist has created an image of a suspicious male who approached a female in Oakville on May 31, 2021.

Police are encouraging the community to view and share the photo as they have yet to identify the suspect.

Police say the male driver is described as Black, approximately 20-30 years old, has chin-length black braided hair, low-cut facial hair and a tattoo on his right neck/shoulder area running up behind his ear.

The vehicle is described as a newer model, 4-door silver Honda Civic, according to police.

According to police, the incident took place at approximately 2:15 p.m. on Sunday, May 30, 2021.

Police say a female was walking in the area of Morrison Heights Dr. and Linbrook Rd. when a silver Honda Civic pulled up.

The male driver engaged her in conversation from within his vehicle and asked for directions, personal questions and then offered the female a ride, according to police.

Police say when the victim declined, the male driver became increasingly verbally aggressive and repeatedly demanded that she get into his car. The victim became fearful for her personal safety and left the area on foot without further incident. No physical threat was made by the male driver and no weapon(s) were observed, according to police.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of this suspect is asked to contact the 2 District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905 825-4777 ext. 2216.
