Stratford Police says the male involved in the coughing incident at the LCBO has contacted police to discuss the incident.
The investigation is ongoing and SPS is thanking the male for coming forward and the public’s response.
A search is on for a man Stratford Police say coughed on an LCBO employee in the city.
Police tell MyStratfordNow.com the man was at the downtown LCBO on March 24th when witnesses say he appeared to be annoyed over the safety measures the store has taken against COVID-19.
When he got up to the cash register, police say the man coughed twice on an employee working there and he then told others to do the same as he left the store.
Stratford Police Constable Darren Fischer says an assault charge could be laid against the man.
“Technically, any time that somebody does purposely cough on someone with the intention of causing that fear or concern that an illness could be spread by doing so would be considered to be an an assault.”
Police say anyone who sees the man should call them immediately.
