Police are trying to identify a male on a bicycle who approached and inappropriately touched two young children in Oshawa.

On Saturday, September 17, 2016, a five-year-old girl reported to her parents that while playing with a neighbour on Friday, a stranger approached them and asked to play. The two were playing in a schoolyard at the corner of Grandview Street North and Beatrice Street East between 4:30 and 7 p.m. when a male arrived on a bicycle. He asked them if they wanted to play a game and touched both of them inappropriately as part of the game. The male was last seen riding his bicycle eastbound on Beatrice Street East. The incident occurred just out of view of their parents.

The suspect is described as a male, with brown skin and dark spots on his face. He was wearing a sleeveless shirt with a basketball on it and black shorts. He was riding a blue bicycle with stripes on it.

Investigators are appealing to residents with video surveillance systems in the area to check their files for the suspect.
