Ottawa police said Sunday they are seeking a male after a man entered a Greenbank Road-area school late last week.

At 4 p.m. on Thursday, a man watched a group of students playing outside a school in the Trend Arlington area, then entered the school. He left after a staff member confronted him, police said.

The suspect is a white male in his 20s, pale, approximately six feet tall with a medium to slender build and bushy eyebrows. He was wearing a grey-hooded sweatshirt and had a blue bike helmet with black visor.


He spoke English with no accent and was observed riding a mountain bike prior to the incident in the school. Witnesses described him as acting strangely and indicated that he may have walked with a limp.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 613-236-1222 ext. 5944 or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477 (TIPS).
