Two women reported being targeted by a male driving a black SUV-style vehicle in Hamilton hours apart, leading the Hamilton police to issue a description of the suspect.

The Hamilton Police Service says that the suspect’s black vehicle could also be a Jeep. He described as a white male who is six feet tall and 190 pounds, with longer hair on top that is buzzed on the sides. He has tattoos on both of his arms and both hands.

Around 2 a.m. on Thursday (Oct. 21), HPS officers responded to a woman in distress near Dunsmure Road.

She reported that she had been picked up by an unknown man. While parked near Strathcona Avenue, he pulled out a steel pipe and threatened to beat her with it.

The woman got out of the vehicle and fled on foot through the parking lot yelling for help.

Hours earlier, the police received a report of a suspicious person near Lawrence and Mount Albion roads. Upon arrival, police learned a woman had been picked up by a man in a dark-coloured Jeep.

She became fearful after seeing the man holding a knife in his lap. The woman got out of the car after the man ordered her to exit when he approached a Hamilton Police RIDE lane.

Anyone with information that can help with this investigation is asked to call the HPS (905-546-2930).
