On Wednesday, April 12, 2023, the Barrie Police Service commenced an investigation into a number of overnight occurrences where an unknown male attended a Cook Street residence and on two occasions, was seen performing an indecent act.
As a result of the ongoing investigation, which was conducted by the Barrie Police Service Crimes Against Person Unit, a 51-year-old male of no fixed address was located and arrested late yesterday afternoon in northeast Barrie.
The male was transported to Barrie Police Headquarters where he has been charged with Indecent Act (2 counts), voyeurism (2 counts) and Trespass by Night. He has been held in custody and is scheduled to appear today by video for a bail hearing at the Ontario Court of Justice located in Barrie.
The Barrie Police Service wish to thank the community for information that had been received since the details of these incidents were shared publicly earlier in the week.
