A MAN who allegedly committed an act of indecency in front of a child in Greenway, was filmed and chased away by the child’s parents.
The man, 40, didn’t approach or talk to the child but the incident occurred at about 5pm on Tuesday, September 18, near Lake Tuggeranong.
Following the search of a Kambah home, the man was arrested yesterday (October 8) and was charged with committing an act of indecency in the presence of a child.
He will face the ACT Magistrates Court today.

Canberra Business Chamber CEO Dr Michael Schaper says the organisation has "begun to reduce" its reliance on ACT government funding, raising the question of how independent the city's principal voice of business has been of government influence over recent years.
