Police are investigating a voyeurism incident that occurred Sunday afternoon in Halifax.
On September 18 at approximately 7:30 p.m., police received a report of a man taking video of a 14-year-old boy who was in the stall next to him in a men’s washroom. The incident occurred at approximately 4:45 p.m. in the men’s washroom near the cinema at Park Lane Mall, located at 5657 Spring Garden Road. The boy yelled at the man who then ran out of the bathroom. The boy left the washroom with his 13-year-old friend, who was also in the bathroom, and reported the incident to his father, who later called police.
