Belleville, Ontario – On July 30th, 2017, at 11:15 a.m. a woman was walking northbound on Coleman Street nearing Harriett Street when she observed a man walking towards her. The man had his genitals exposed as he walked past her. The male did not speak to the woman. Police began an investigation and received assistance from the public which included the incident being captured on video surveillance from a nearby location.
As a result of the video, police were able to capture images of the suspect. These images were then distributed to members of the Belleville Police Service in an attempt to identify the male.
On the 31st of July 2017, an off duty Belleville police officer who had recently reviewed the images observed the same male at a local business on North Front St. As a result, uniformed officers attended and arrested the male for the indecent act.
The male was identified as Todd Andrew Brown – a 51 year old Belleville resident. Brown was released on a Promise to Appear and an Officer In Charge Undertaking with a future court date in Belleville.
