Regional Police have released a composite image of a woman they are looking to speak to in connection to an incident in Kitchener.

On the afternoon of November 23, 2017 Regional Police responded to a report of a suspicious person at a home near Highland Road and Belmont Avenue.

A woman approached a home, telling the owner that she worked for a local child protection agency saying she was investigating complaints concerning the family.

Once let inside, the woman began “inspecting” the home.

The homeowner later determined no complaints were made against the family, and the woman was not part of the agency she said she was from.

Police are looking to speak to this woman. She’s described as white, in her mid-30s, five feet three inches tall, with brown eyes, and scraggly brown curly hair to her shoulders.

The woman was wearing business attire, and was carrying a black briefcase.

Anyone who recognizes her or has any information on this incident is asked to call police at 519-570-9777 ext. 4499 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
