The two men told a resident they were officers in an attempt to gain access to the complex.

“It wasn’t clear what their intent was,” Const. Andre Johnson told Global News in an email.

“The individuals were not allowed inside by the resident that they approached, but were later seen in the building.”

He continued: “We are still investigating what their purpose was. We are looking at all possibilities, including whether or not it was an attempt at a break and enter.”
