Man arrested for voyeurism

Police have arrested a man in relation to a voyeurism incident that occurred yesterday in Dartmouth.

At approximately 4:25 p.m. on August 15, police received a report that a man had taken a photo of an 11-year-old boy who was in the stall next to him in a men’s washroom at Mic Mac Mall. The boy left the washroom and reported the incident to his mother who alerted mall security. Security officers entered the washroom and detained the man until police arrived on scene at approximately 4:40 p.m. Patrol officers arrested a 31-year-old man and seized his cell phone. As a result of the investigation, investigators executed a search warrant at a Middle Sackville residence this afternoon and seized a computer and other electronic storage devices.

The man has since been released from custody and this matter remains under investigation by members of the General Investigation Section and Internet Child Exploitation Unit, both of which fall within the Criminal Investigation Section. Charges are anticipated but have yet to be laid.
