Police have charged a man after he allegedly exposed himself to a woman and her four-year-old daughter in Halifax.

Police say the 40-year-old woman and her child were walking on Bell AireTerrace around 10:30 a.m. Saturday when a man came out of his home and yelled at them.

Investigators say the woman ignored the man at first, but when he yelled a second time, she turned around to find the man exposing himself.

A 39-year-old man was arrested a short time later at a home on the same street.

He's facing charges of committing an indecent act and a violation of a court order.
