INNISFIL - On Friday, July 20, 2018 around 2:30 p.m., South Simcoe Police were called to a beach area for a report of possible indecent act by a man on a child in a public washroom. 

Detectives launched an investigation and have determined that the indecent act did not occur as initially reported. 

Investigators were able to identify the person involved and have learned that he was on conditions from a previous arrest to stay away from public areas where children might be present. As a result, a 87-year-old Barrie man has been arrested and is facing a charge of Breach of Undertaking. 

He will be appearing in Bradford Provincial Court on Sept. 13, 2018.
