Possible sex offender approached teen twice: police

Toronto police are warning of a possible sex offender who they say approached a 17-year-old girl twice within the past few months.

The first incident happened in March after the teen left her building near Keele Street and Wilson Avenue.

She told police a man got out of a car, grabbed her hand and told her he knows where she lives. She broke free and ran away.

Then one morning when the girl was walking to school between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. during the week of June 11-15, the same man in the same car allegedly approached her again. She escaped once more.

She described the suspect as black, 30-32 years old, five-foot-nine to five-foot-11, with a thin build. He was wearing dark pants, a dark shirt and sunglasses. He was driving an older four-door black or grey small car.

Anyone with information can call police at 416-808-3100 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
