Police have charged a man suspected of making inappropriate remarks to young girls in the Ottewell and Minchau areas of Edmonton.

A 25-year-old man was arrested on Saturday after police investigated a case of indecent exposure at a home in the Capilano area earlier this month.

Police believe he is the same man on a bike who was approaching and making inappropriate remarks to girls in Ottewell in late September and early October.

He now faces charges of sexual assault, sexual contact with a child, sexual counsel of a child and indecent exposure.
