Seeking assistance in identifying a person of interest involved in Fraud

(Ottawa) –The Ottawa Police Service Central Criminal Investigations Unit is asking for public assistance in identifying a woman.

On March 31, 2017, at approximately 9:00 pm, a woman approached a male at the Mackenzie King Bridge entrance of the Rideau Centre. The female convinced the male to make a donation to an unknown charity. The male was subsequently led to an ATM to withdraw money. Once he had entered his PIN, he was moved aside by the female and she proceeded to remove an unauthorized amount of cash from his account. It is believed the victim was targeted due to his cognitive disability.

The female is described as an Asian female, approximately 35 years old, small build wearing black pants and a black jacket (view pictures.)
