An Abbotsford man has received an award for his efforts in helping to stop a potential predator.

Kanwalbir Dosanjh received the Abbotsford Police Department’s commendation award on Tuesday during the police board meeting.

The situation began on May 14 of this year when Dosanjh’s wife and daughter were on their regular evening walk in Clearbrook Park. A man stepped out from the bushes and began following them.

Dosanjh visited the park alone on the evening of May 23 and saw a man step out from bushes and follow some other women.

He then approached the man and, while he was talking to him, took his picture.

Dosanjh turned the photo over to police and it was distributed at patrol briefings and on the staff computer site.

Police were able to identify and locate the suspect, preventing possible attacks against women, said Deputy Chief Rick Lucy during the presentation.
