Police have released a composite sketch of a man who attempted to enter the window of bedroom in Riverside Meadows on Saturday morning.

Just before 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, the RCMP received a complaint of a man trying to get into a residence window in the Riverside Meadows area.

Police say the man removed a screen on a ground floor bedroom window and was knocking on the window. He left when a resident in the home told him to leave. He is described as dark skinned and wearing a black toque.

On July 23, 2016 a similar incident was reported where a male had opened an unlocked bedroom window at a basement residence in Riverside Meadows. He did not enter the residence but spoke some words to the resident who was in the bedroom. He left when told to leave. No physical description was obtained although he is described as having an accent.

The RCMP cannot confirm that these incidents are related. They are currently under investigation. In neither incident did the suspicious male enter the bedroom, nor was anyone injured.

Home owners are reminded to be diligent about securing windows, particularly ground floor windows. Motion detector lights and minimal shrubbery around windows are recommended. If you see any activity or persons that seem suspicious, report it immediately via 911.

If you have information about this investigation, please call the Red Deer RCMP at (403) 304-7764 or call your local police detachment. To remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), at, or by SMS.
