It is reported that:
A 37-year-old woman was jogging in the area
An unknown man on a bike approached her from behind
He sexually assaulted her and fled northbound on Chine Dr.
He is described as wearing a black bubble jacket, grey hoody with the hood covering his head, and dark track pants.
2020.04.25: A year later and these vehicles are still being stolen on a daily basis in the Toronto area. If you have one, at night, park another vehicle behind one of these to prevent thieves from driving off in yours.
February 7, 2019. YRPS warns of SUVs being stolen. Over the past year 80+ Lexus RX350, Lexus GX460, Toyota 4Runner and Toyota Highlanders have been
stolen. Thieves are defeating their security systems and reprogramming new key fobs to start these vehicles and driving off with them.
Do not leave these vehicles in your driveway overnight without additional security features.
Example video from Toronto Police:
2019.09.25: Use caution if you suspect someone is in your house or backyard. Recently, a homeowner was stabbed
when he confronted thieves in his backyard.

Police Neighbourhood Watch Training Videos
Neighbourhood watch training videos on what to do and how to better protect yourself. It is recommended that you watch these videos if you
plan on joining a neighbourhood watch.
Training Video - Part I
Training Video - Part II
Training Video - Part III
Training Video - Part IV
See the following safety page for safety tips.
Home security cameras: Check with your municipality if there are any by-laws. If not, then it is recommended that any backyard cameras
do not point into your neighbours yard - just aim your cameras more into your yard and closer to the ground. On the street there is no expectation of privacy. Smartphone
cameras, Google Maps, Google Street View and dashcams are everywhere so, adding security cameras is not much different. Try to cover out to the street for perpetrators that come by vehicle.
Discuss with your neighbours if they would like you to cover a portion of their front lawn to help with their security. Be a good neighbour and respect their wishes when it comes to

Interview with a burglar about Break and Enters:
Basic Crime Definitions
Robbery: When someone does or tries to steal your property AND assaults or threatens to assault you. ie. A street mugging or a theft from a store where a weapon
was shown. Two examples of thefts mislabelled as robberies are finding your house broken into (a Break and Enter) or shoplifting (Theft Under).
Break and Enter: Unauthorized entry into your home/business, closed garage, shed or fully fenced/gated yard and steals or attempts to steal property. Breaking into your
car is not a break and enter, just a Theft From Vehicle.

Neighbourhood Signs and Stickers
On multiple occasions people have asked about how to get signs and window stickers. You must contact your local police service directly for this information. Neighbourhood Protect has
no sign/sticker program. Also, most police services require around 50% neighbour sign-up before they will endorse your watch. So, before contacting the police, you need to actually
build a functioning neighbourhood watch.
