GRAND HAVEN, Mich. – Public Safety Officers in Grand Haven are looking for a man who has made some inappropriate comments to women on the boardwalk recently.
Officers say they were called about a situation on Monday, August 8th, when a woman walking on the boardwalk was approached by a man who began walking with her. The man told her he had recently moved into a nearby farm house and was starting up two new businesses. He also told her that she was attractive.
The woman went into a business at Chinook Pier to get away from the man. He then started looking into other businesses in the area.
An employee at a nearby store on Chinook Pier told officers that the man also approached her and commented on her looks as well.

The man is described as white, in his mid-30’s to early 40’s, and is well-groomed with dark brown hair and a beard. He has an earring in his left ear. He was wearing a teal-colored athletic shirt, khaki shorts and tennis shoes.
