A 58-year-old Salmon Arm man is facing charges of committing an indecent act and indecent exposure after being arrested last week in regard to an incident in a Canoe playground on Sept. 23.

The man’s name is being withheld pending the approval of the charges by Crown counsel. He has been placed under a number of conditions to preserve public safety. The suspect is to have no contact with anyone under the age of 16 years and is not to be found anywhere a child might reasonably expected to be present, including playgrounds or schools.

“The Salmon Arm detachment remains vigilant to ensure these conditions are followed pending the court process,” says Staff Sgt. Kevin Keane. The suspect is alleged to have exposed himself to some young girls at the playground, after initially speaking to them and giving them coloured markers.
