Some parents in the Town of Mount-Royal are on edge after they found out a suspicious man had been lurking around their neighbourhood last week.

The man had been spotted snapping pictures at a neighbourhood school, a local park and library.

Parents of Dunrae Gardens elementary school students were particularly alarmed when they got a notice advising them to be more vigilant — because that school, unlike the others in the area, doesn’t have a fence around their schoolyard.
