RCMP Seeking Public Help Identifying Two Men

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (R.C.M.P.) are seeking the assistance of the public in identifying two males who may be able to assist with a current investigation into a “Suspicious Incident Report” (SIR).

Monday August 31st, 2015 at 3:30 pm, a passerby saw two men exhibiting suspicious behaviour while on the John Street Bridge in the area around Rogers Centre.  The incident was reported to private sector partners who in turn reported it to local police and submitted a  “Suspicious Incident Report” (SIR) to the RCMP’s National Critical Infrastructure Team.

The two suspects are described as follows:

Suspect one:

2015-10-19a

  • Age: 20-30
  • Medium build
  • Brown skin
  • Green and white striped shirt with red trim
  • Blue jeans
  • Blue Adidas shoes with yellow laces
  • Watch
  • Carrying a backpack, sunglasses

 

Suspect 2:

2015-10-19b

  • Age: 20-30
  • Medium build
  • Brown skin
  • Blue and yellow striped shirt with some purple stripes
  • Dark blue jeans
  • Blue Puma shoes with yellow laces
  • Watch
  • Sunglasses hanging on shirt buttons

The SIR is a system that is used to collect information on suspicious incidents that may be related to national security.  The secure, encrypted system allows reporting, sharing and analysis of information between the RCMP, local police forces, federal national security partners and the owners, and operators of Canada’s critical infrastructure on suspicious activities.

The SIR system is more than a reporting system—it is a mechanism that allows the RCMP to develop crucial partnerships, support criminal investigations, and maintain continuous dialogue with internal and external partners.

“Having our partners within the private sector identify and report suspicious behaviour through the SIR is a crucial step in protecting Canada’s critical infrastructure,” commented Supt. Lise Crouch, Assistant Criminal Operations – National Security Ontario.

If anyone has information that would assist with identifying the two men described above, please call the Ontario RCMP at 1-800-387-0020, or provide information anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800- 222-TIPS (8477).
