Winnipeg Police say they have talked to the man they were looking for following a bizarre incident at St. Vital Centre last weekend.
A group of girls were shopping on Sunday, Feb. 19 when they noticed a man following them. At one point he got so close, the girls had to hide in a store just to get away from him.
It appears the man may have poured some sort of substance, possibly a bodily fluid, on one of the girl’s back.
Her mother has told 680 CJOB, the substance was sticky and white. She believes it was semen, but police are waiting for lab testing before jumping to conclusions.
On Saturday, police put out a surveillance photo of a person of interest they were hoping to speak to and within less than 24 hours police confirmed they had met that man.
He has been interviewed and is cooperating with investigators.
“At this time, charges will only be considered once the forensic examination of the substance seized has been verified and concluded,” a spokesperson said in a statement.
It’s unclear when that testing might be completed.
