Police are investigating two incidents that took place early Saturday morning in Halifax.
At 4:32 a.m., police were called to a residence on Tobin Street to a report of a break and enter. It’s believed that a man entered through an unlocked door and turned on a light that woke up one of the tenants. Nothing was stolen and the man fled after being confronted.
At 5 a.m., a woman on Lucknow Street called police after observing a man looking into her window. Officers were in the area and observed the man outside the residence. He fled when he saw police who were not able to locate him.
At this time investigators are exploring the possibility that it’s the same suspect in both cases. Based on both descriptions the suspect is described as a white man, 30-40 years old, 5’7” – 6’ with light brown/blonde hair and a medium build. His clothing was all black and his jacket described as a black trench coat.
Residents are reminded to be vigilant in keeping doors and windows locked. If you observe any suspicious activity, contact police at 490-5020 right away.
