HALTON POLICE are looking for a serial sex predator who has attacked two women shopping in Oakville stores. The first woman was attacked June 15 at 4 p.m. as she shopped alone in a grocery store in north Oakville.
The 29-year-old was approached by a stranger who pulled down her tank top and then fled. He left the store parking lot in a newer four-door silver sedan.
Then last Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., a 46-year-old woman was shopping alone when a man ran up to her, fondled her breasts and buttocks and then ran off.
In both cases, the suspect was described as black, between 17 and 25 years old, 6-feet tall, with a slim build and a shaved head or short cropped hair.
The names of the stores were not released by police to protect the businesses.
Anyone with information on either attack is asked to call Halton police at 905-825-4777, ext. 5235 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
