Huron County OPP has laid charges against an Essex County resident in relation to some concerning incidents that took place last week.

On September 25, the OPP met with two victims that reported they had concerning interactions with a suspicious person.

The accused allegedly approached a teenaged student that was waiting for the school bus and asked her several times if she wanted to get into his vehicle. She declined and immediately reported the matter when she arrived at school.

He has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for November 2.
