The Guelph Police Service is investigating after three young girls were approached Wednesday evening by a woman who offered them bicycles.

Just before 6 p.m., three 10-year-old girls were walking in the area of Delaware Avenue and Mohawk Drive when they were approached by a woman. She told the girls they were pretty and that she had new bicycles in her backyard they could have, pointing generally across the street. The girls continued walking to one girl’s house as the woman followed them.

The woman was described as white, approximately 30, tall and thin with blonde hair in a tight bun, missing teeth and a birthmark or tattoo over her right eye. She was wearing a dress or sweater and covered her eyes with her hands while she spoke.

Impaired arrest following collision

A Guelph man is charged with impaired driving by a drug following a collision Wednesday morning.

Approximately 11:25 a.m. several witnesses called to report a parked vehicle being struck on Westwood Road. A Guelph Police Service officer on patrol came across the collision scene moments later and saw a man exit the suspect vehicle to observe the damage before getting back in and parking his car.

The officer spoke to the man, who was showing signs of impairment and appeared confused. He was arrested and transported to the police station, where an officer trained in drug recognition determined his ability to operate a vehicle was impaired.

Investigation revealed the man is prohibited from driving due to an earlier impaired driving conviction.

A 64-year-old Guelph man is charged with impaired driving and driving while prohibited. His licence was suspended for 90 days and his vehicle was impounded for 45 days. He will appear in court May 24.

The Guelph Police Service would like to encourage the public to always consume alcohol and controlled substances responsibly. Please don’t drive if you are going to consume alcohol or drugs, and please ensure that you plan ahead so that you have a safe ride home. Anyone who spots a suspected impaired driver is asked to immediately call 911.
