Police are warning the public about a man who has been pushing his eavestrough cleaning services in parts of Cambridge and Kitchener.
Officers have received three complaints from residents in the Galt area of Cambridge and Borden Avenue in Kitchener. They say a man approaches women and elderly women who live alone and "acts aggressively" when offering to clean their eavestroughs, according to police.
On Sept. 6, police said a suspicious man went back to a house where he was denied work and broke in, stealing personal items. He fled on a bicycle after he was confronted by the homeowner.
The man is described as white, 40 to 50 years old, five feet and seven inches tall with a thin build. He had short, brown hair and light facial scruff.
Anyone who has interacted with the man or knows him is asked to call police.
