On Tuesday, Orillia OPP launched an investigation into a reported sexual assault. The victim let the male suspect into her house under the premise that some work needed to be done.
The investigation is still in the early stages however the OPP would like to remind the public to always use caution when people are coming to the door soliciting. If you have unknown persons attending your home, always check for identification to verify who the person is and who they are representing. Never let people into your home unless you arranged the appointment yourself.
The Orillia OPP Crime Unit continues to investigate this crime. Anyone having information regarding this occurrence is encouraged to contact the Orillia OPP at 705-326-3536 or 1-888-310-1122.
The OPP reminds all members of the public to be aware of their personal safety at all times. The OPP’s website, www.opp.ca, contains a number of useful resources tips and links.
