OPP seeks assistance to identify a male suspect linked to Ontario Air Duct company

The Hawkesbury Crime Unit of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) needs the assistance of the public to identify a male suspect in relation to a business going by the name of “Ontario Air Duct” and advertising through Facebook.

A resident of Alfred-Plantagenet Township was victimized after using this service for air duct cleaning. Once the appointment was made, two male subjects attended the victim’s home to complete the work. During the course of their visit, one of the subjects committed a gesture of a sexual nature towards the victim. Both males left the residence driving an orange colored business truck. The victim was not physically injured during this incident.

This matter is still under investigation. The Hawkesbury OPP are asking that if you have any information about this company, have hired their services or, know the identity of the subjects, to please contact Detective/Constable Eddy Saardi at 613-632-2729 or 1-888-310-1122.

If you have information regarding any criminal matters and wish to remain anonymous, you are encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS). Persons giving tips to Crime Stoppers that lead to an arrest may be eligible for a cash reward. Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to Call Display. Your call will stay anonymous and your presence won’t be needed in court.
