Kamloops Mounties want to find a man with a dim-sized hole in his cheek who was harassing a woman in Riverside Park on Wednesday (March 31).
Const. Crystal Evelyn said the detachment is investigating two reports involving the same description of a suspicious man.
Police initially received a report of a suspicious man who tried to hug a woman and asked her repeatedly for her name just before noon in Riverside Park. He allegedly made rude comments and acted aggressively before he left to catch a bus.
Later in the day, police received a second report involving a suspicious man who matched the same description, but on West Columbia Street.
In both cases the man’s name was said to be Jon or Johnny. He is described as being white, in his late 20s, standing 5-foot-10, with dark hair and an average build.
In one of the reports, the man was also described as having dark stubble and a hole in his right cheek about the size of a dime.
“We appreciate the callers reporting this information directly to us,” Evelyn said. “Thanks to the specific details they provided to police, investigators were able to see the potential link in these two incidents.”
Police are investigating and reviewing surveillance video in the area. Anyone with information on the man, or who experienced something similar, is asked to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2021-9990.
