Fraud Arrest R15-55182 On July 27, 2015 Winnipeg Police Division 13 Investigators began an investigation into an allegation of fraud by 7 Oaks General Hospital.
Between June 29 and July 22, 2015 a male was employed by the hospital in the capacity of a Family Patient Care Manager. As a condition of employment the individual was required to be a licenced health care professional.
Concerns were raised about the validity of the accused's credentials. The College of Physiotherapists advised that the accused was not a licenced physiotherapist and the documentation provided to the hospital was likely forged. 7 Oaks Hospital immediately terminated the accused's employment and contacted police. The accused had been employed in a part-time administrative capacity and did not have contact with patients.
On Tuesday, July 28th, 2015 investigators arrested a 30 year old male from Winnipeg. He was charged with Fraud over $5000 and Forgery and released on a Promise to Appear.
Indecent Act C15-158588 On July 30, 2015 at approximately 12:15 a.m. a resident in the 500 block of Kavanagh Street noticed an unknown male seated on the front steps of their residence. The male was observed to be holding a ski pole and apples. Other residents attended to the front door at which time the male began speaking to two youths while ignoring the adults in the group. Despite numerous requests to leave, the male continued to focus on the youths while offering them apples. The male eventually left.
A short time later the male was observed committing an indecent act in the rear of the residence. The male left when he was confronted by neighbours in the area who demanded he leave.
The suspect was described as: Caucasian male, 30 to 40 years in age, 6 feet tall, thin build, wavy brown shaggy hair, wearing a black t-shirt, dark pants, black Calvin Klein underwear and a white string as a belt. He was carrying a cross-country ski pole as a walking stick.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact East District detectives at (204) 986-2857 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 780-TIPS (8477).
