Ottawa police hunting sexual assault suspect who posed as meter man

OTTAWA – Police in Ottawa say they’re looking for a sexual assault suspect who gained entry to a woman’s residence by identifying himself as a gas meter inspector.

They say the incident happened early Friday afternoon after the man knocked on the woman’s door.

Investigators describe the suspect as a French-speaking white man in his early fifties, between five feet seven and five feet 10 inches tall, clean shaven with thick black eyebrows and a hooked nose.

They say he was wearing a black jacket, black toque with pom-poms, dark pants and beige work boots, and he was carrying a clip board.

Police say they’re concerned the man may have attempted to gain entry into other residences.

They’re asking anyone who spotted anything suspicious to call them.
