Community Safety Alert Update

Hello North Glenora Residents,

Edmonton police arrested and charged a man after receiving several reports of a man being lewd in his vehicle. Officers received multiple reports in recent weeks of a suspect driving a silver car with an obscured licence plate, “observing or following females while conducting himself in an inappropriate fashion,” according to the Edmonton Police Service.

Last week, a letter was sent to parents of Laurier Heights School in west Edmonton about a disturbing incident at the beginning of the month. The letter from the principal said two students were walking home after school on Friday, Sept. 2, when they were approached by an unfamiliar and suspicious man in a vehicle. “This man allegedly performed an inappropriate act in front of the students before driving away. Both students made it home safely and the incident was reported to the Edmonton Police Service,” the letter said.

Mackenzie Murry, 31, of Onoway, has been charged with seven counts each of indecent act and breaching his probation, as well as one count of breaching a conditional sentence order. The suspect’s vehicle has been seized and will also be subject to a search warrant, police said, adding further charges may be laid.
