Ottawa police are investigating the possible sexual assault of a four-year-old boy at the Kanata Leisure Centre wave pool.

The boy's family told police the incident happened in the washroom of the men's changeroom Wednesday evening. Police have yet to interview the boy.

The city won't comment on the matter but there are security cameras throughout the building.  Officials also say the facility takes several safety precautions such as staff training, security systems, and access control systems.

Because the investigation is in its early stages, police aren't giving many details, much to the dismay of some parents.

"As a parent, I would hate to put my children in a situation where they could be hurt," said Brian Derby. "I mean I'm troubled to hear that."
