Grey County OPP say they received a report of an indecent act on September 10th at about 8:30 p.m., that had occurred on Collingwood Street in Meaford. The victim, a 12-year old girl, was walking on Collingwood Street, in Meaford, when an unknown male driving a small, four door vehicle that was grey or silver in colour, with a darker interior, pulled over and began asking her questions that were personal and sexual in nature. The suspect was described as being a Caucasian male in his 50’s, heavy set, with brown and grey short hair which lay flat on his head, some grey facial hair on his chin, dark eyebrows and yellowed crooked teeth. Most distinctively, the suspect had one eye that appeared to be lower than the other. Anyone with information which may assist in identifying the vehicle, and or the driver, is asked to contact Grey County OPP at 1-888-310-1122. (Source: muskoka411.com)
