Peel police share concerns over viral social media post
Peel Regional Police (PRP) constable Akhil Mooken recently talked about a social media post that’s gone viral across all social platforms involving a person going door to door selling chocolates and allegedly pepper-spraying the homeowner.
Police have investigated this concern and constable Mooken says there is no validity to this and they have not received any reports regarding anybody being pepper-sprayed.
“We want to reassure the community that their safety is the number one concern for Peel Regional Police,” said Mooken.
The police are asking residents to call in and report if they have been the victim of crime including being pepper-sprayed by someone who came to their door.
At this time, police say they have not received any reports involving a door to door salesperson and are advising those who come across the video to stop sharing it.
