Police seek suspect in assault on senior 


The Windsor Police Major Crimes Unit is seeking the public’s assistance to identify a suspect in an assault on a senior.

On November 23, 2023, shortly before 10 p.m., officers were called to the 10000 block of Atwater Cresent for a report of an injured person. When officers arrived, they located a 75-year-old man with significant injuries to his face, including a large laceration, abrasions, and substantial bruising. 

Through investigation, officers learned that the victim was outside of his residence when he observed the suspect rummaging through recycling bins. An altercation ensued and the victim was assaulted. 

The victim was sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.  

The suspect is described as a white male, 30-40 years old, approximately 5’4” tall, bald and clean-shaven. At the time of the incident, he wore a beige sweater and was riding a three-wheeled bicycle with a trailer attachment resembling a child’s stroller or wagon.

Investigators are asking residents of the area indicated on the map to check their surveillance cameras for images of the suspect.
