Police investigate incident of male in pickup truck following two females

Barrie police are investigating what they call a suspicious incident on Wednesday, around 9:30 p.m., which originated in the downtown and ended in the area of Bradford Street/Vespra Road.
The incident involved two adult females who were walking westbound on Dunlop Street from the area of the Five Points intersection, and a male operating what is described as black Dodge RAM pickup truck. The victims report that as they crossed the intersection, they observed the driver of the pickup truck staring at them. The truck would drive by them slowly, stop ahead and wait for them to pass and repeat this strange sequence of events.
As the females approached the Dunlop/High streets construction area, they turned left onto High and continued southbound onto Bradford. The driver of the pickup then maneuvered around the construction zone and eventually parked in front of the former Prince of Wales School. It was at this point that the male began to shout at the two females (unknown what exactly was said), and at one point opened the door of his truck, got out and began to approach them. The driver then jumped into his truck as the females ran towards the Tim Horton’s and was last seen westbound on Vespra.
The suspect is described as: male white his 40s to 50; average build; wearing glasses; clean shaven; light brown hair with buzz-cut; light blue or grey t-shirt.
If anyone recognizes the description of this male or the pickup truck involved, they are encouraged to contact police by emailing the investigating officer Constable Curtis Fisher at cfisher@barriepolice.ca, or calling Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS or leave an anonymous tip online at www.p3tips.com.
