Suspicious C15-162254 Over the past week the Winnipeg Police Service has been made aware of a number of suspicious incidents in the area of Assiniboine Park. One incident took place on Wellington Crescent, the other in the park itself.
In each case a female was walking or jogging in the area when they came upon a wallet containing what appeared to be a large sum of money. After locating the wallet they were approached by an unknown male who claimed he has lost something in the area and then took possession of the wallet. The women were not propositioned, and no crime took place. In all instances however, the women felt something was off about the encounter.
The male has been described as: Caucasian, late 30's to early 40's, 5'7" tall, slim build, grey/balding short hair, scruffy facial hair. In one instance the male was wearing khaki coloured shorts and a striped polo shirt. In another instance he was seen with a baseball cap and riding a dark coloured bicycle.

The Winnipeg Police Service would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the importance of actively practicing personal safety: stay alert to your surroundings and trust your instincts if you feel uncomfortable. Stick to well-lit, popular routes and remember that there is safety in numbers.
