Halifax Regional Police are on the lookout for a prowler after a woman in the city’s south end noticed a man looking in her living room window Tuesday evening.

Police say the incident took place just before 9:30 p.m. at her apartment in the 6000 block of Oakland Road. The suspect also tapped on the window a couple of times before leaving on foot towards the front of the building.

“It’s not believed at this point that he made an attempt to get in,” police spokesman Const. Brian Palmeter said yesterday.


The suspect is described as a five-foot-nine white man between 30 and 40 years old. He is said to have a medium build and was wearing dark clothing at the time.

Police don’t think this case is related to a handful of incidents in south-end Halifax over the past year involving women waking to find an unknown man unknown watching them sleep. The man in those cases was described to police as being in his early 20s.

“That being said, part of the investigation will be to determine if there is any link,” Palmeter said. “At this point, it’s not believed to be connected.”
