A man has been cleared of criminal wrongdoing by police after being accused of following women in his vehicle. 

On June 11, 2021, Niagara Regional Police said they had received several complaints about a man driving a burgundy-maroon truck who was allegedly following female joggers in downtown Grimsby.

Although there was no indication that the man had initiated any contact with the various women, the initial report indicated that the complainants said he “follows or leers at female joggers-walkers at different times of the day.”

However, at the time, police said “there is no grounds to believe, or allegations to support that a criminal offence has occurred. Detectives are hoping to identify the male to ascertain his intentions.”

Today, 8 District investigators indicated that they were able to locate and contact the driver and absolve him of any alleged wrongdoing.

“As a result of the investigation, detectives were able to identify the male and determined the male did not commit a criminal offence,” police said in a news release.

“The Niagara Regional Police Service would like to thank the public and media for their assistance in this matter.”
