Winnipeg police have laid charges against a 20-year-old man after an indecent act at a University of Manitoba gym.

On July 6, a 22-year-old woman was in one of the university’s fitness facilities when she noticed a stranger had been watching her, police said.

He then exposed himself and performed an indecent act.

She yelled and the suspect fled, according to police.

Two days later, the woman called police and told them she saw the man in the same area.

Officers have now laid indecent act charges against a 20-year-old man.

He has been released on a promise to appear.
