On Tuesday July 6, 2010 at approximately 11:10 p.m. a 16-year-old male and three 15-year-old females were socializing in Storie Park at Mill Street and Simcoe Street South in Oshawa. A male approached the teenagers with a flashlight and microphone device on his chest area. The suspect began yelling obscenities and demanding the teens get down on the ground. The victims complied, as the male advised he was a police officer and threatened to shoot them.
While on the ground, the suspect searched all four victims, touching them in inappropriate areas. The suspect also searched a backpack belonging to one of the victims, but did not steal any items. Throughout the search, the suspect repeatedly spoke into his microphone device using police jargon and various numeric terms. The suspect then fled the area heading north toward Mill Street.
The victims contacted police immediately. Police attended the scene and conducted a search for the suspect with negative results.
The suspect is described as: male, white, age 30-40 years, 5’ 9”, clean-shaven with a deep voice. He was wearing a dark-coloured sweater, blue jeans, a black toque with yellow writing and a black microphone device on his chest area. He was carrying a small flashlight as well as a long black item in his back pocket, possibly a firearm.
