Police are warning residents of a central Waterloo neighbourhood about a man who has been seen trying to look through windows.

According to police, the man was seen trying to look into windows in the Noecker Street area once last September, and several times in December and January.

“There’s no information that he’s entered any residences, there’s no information that he’s done anything to anybody,” says Staff Sgt. John Goodman.

“He’s just kind of hanging around.”

The man is described as being in his 30s with a bald or shaved head and skin that may be tanned. He is about 6’ with a muscular build.

He is not believed to be the same man who was involved in a similar incident in the area in 2010.

Police say residents should remember to be vigilant of their surroundings, keep doors and windows locked and use outdoor lights.

If this man is spotted peering into your window, police say to call 911 immediately.

“We don’t know what his purpose is, why he would be hanging around late at night,” says Goodman.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 619-650-8500 ext. 6399.
