A man is in custody following complaints that he was spotted following a school girl riding a bike.

According to police, he was spotted driving a red Mitsubishi SUV in the area of Southcrest Drive and Base Line Road West on the afternoon of June 16.

The following week, on the evening of June 20, a man matching the suspect’s description, in the same vehicle was spotted watching a young girl riding a scooter, in the area of Andover Drive and Viscount Road.

On June 21, 48-year-old Johannes Wilhelmus Laning was arrested, and charged with two counts of harassment, and breaching probation - a man by the same name faced similar charges in a 2020 incident.

Investigators believe that there may be other victims. If you have any information, please contact London Police Services.
