Police are looking for a man who was spotted looking at children in Kincardine.

South Bruce OPP received a call just before 5 PM last Friday about a suspicious male parked in a gold minivan looking at children playing at Lions Park.

Witnesses say the man was in the minivan for an hour -- and had been travelling with a young woman in her 30's.

The suspect is described as being 5 foot 10 and skinny with blonde hair.

He was wearing a beige hat, orange shirt and jeans and had a necklace with a marijuana leaf on it.

Police say he was also acting strangely.

Anyone with information is asked to call South Bruce OPP or Crime Stoppers.

Suspicious motorists approaches youth
Date: May 06, 2009

Police say a woman driving a late-model gold coloured van offered to give a Wasaga Beach child a ride to school on Thurs., April 30.

The child did not know the woman, police say.

Const. Mark Kinney of the Huronia West OPP detachment says the incident happened around 9 a.m.

"This gold van stopped beside the youth who at the time was in the area of the pathway that connects Caribou Trail with Birchview Dunes Elementary School," Kinney said.

He said that thankfully the youth ran away and once at school, reported the incident.

"The members of the Huronia West detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police remind all parents to speak to your children about being safe while walking along our roadways," Kinney said.

He said that under no circumstances should youth ever enter someone's home or vehicle if they don't have parental permission to do so.

He added that youth should also travel with a buddy and avoid isolated routes. Parents should also make sure they know the route their child is taking, Kinney said.

Anyone with information about the above incident is asked to call the detachment at 429-3575.

N.B. woman recalls abduction, escape
Last Updated: Thursday, April 8, 2010 | 6:03 PM AT

A 22-year-old New Brunswick woman testified Thursday about how she was abducted from a pub last fall and abandoned in a gravel pit with a plastic bag taped around her head.

The man said, "Have a nice life," then drove away, she told the court.

The woman, who worked at the pub, testified in provincial court in Hampton during the attempted murder trial of Adrien John Lepage, 55.

Lepage pleaded guilty Feb. 2 to two charges of theft and confinement but not guilty to the charge of attempted murder.

The woman said there were only two customers playing video-lottery terminals on the Monday morning at the end of November when Lepage walked into the Barnwood Pub in Quispamsis, in southern New Brunswick, and ordered a half-rack of ribs and a rye drink.

She said he initially seemed nice as he ordered more drinks and food. But he then approached the bar and told her he had a gun and would blow her head off if she didn't give him the money in the cash register.

Wrapped in duct tape

She said he refused to take the $400 and told her to meet him outside, away from the pub's security cameras. The two left the pub together and she said he forced her onto the floor of his van and wrapped duct tape around her mouth, arms and legs.

He drove the van about 55 kilometres to a gravel pit near Lepreau.

When the van stopped, she said, Lepage put more duct tape across her mouth, eyes, arms and legs. She said he then draped a plastic shopping bag over her head and wound more tape around her head, from her chin to her eyebrows.

She said he dragged her from the van and dropped her on the ground. She was hyperventilating and unable to breathe.

She testified that Lepage then said, "Have a nice life," and drove away.

The woman described how she endured some panicky moments until she found a small opening in the tape to breathe through. She managed to free a hand and removed the bag from her head.

Once she freed herself, the woman walked to Highway 1 and tried to flag down a car. One vehicle stopped and left, then a second vehicle slowed and did not stop. Finally, two drivers pulled over to help her.

Lepage is expected to testify Friday.
