A man who allegedly exposed himself while walking on a trail has been arrested, officers are asking anyone who may have had a similar encounter to come forward.

Officers responded to the Cypher Systems Group Greenway public trail in Amherstburg Saturday around 8:30 a.m. for a report of an “indecent act” that had just occurred.

An adult man reported that a man, who he did not know, exposed himself while on the trail.

Police obtained a description of the suspect who was then quickly located and arrested without incident.
