Ottawa man charged with Indecent Act
Ottawa Police have charged and arrested a 34-year-old man after a report he was pleasuring himself near a young boy.
Police were called to the Kanata Leisure Centre around 3 p.m. Saturday to deal with a man who was allegedly masturbating in the men's locker room near a 10-year-old boy.
34-year-old Brent Dagenais has been charged with two counts of Indecent Act and one count of Mischief. He was released from police custody Sunday after a Show Cause Hearing, with conditions to protect the community.

No physical injuries were reported.
