Winnipeg Police say they have arrested a man after they say he committed an indecent act on Orange Street.
Police said they were dispatched to the scene just before 7 a.m. on Tuesday where a 45-year-old woman said she had been followed by a man asking her directions for Polo Park.
When she ignored him, he asked again, and when she turned around, he was committing an indecent act.
The woman fled, but he followed her for a short distance before she was able to outrun him on Orange Street near Dublin.
On Wednesday, a suspect was identified and tracked down downtown.
Drew Wintink, 27, faces charges of committing an indecent act, and failing to comply with a probation order.
