A man has been arrested for allegedly outraging public decency in a Co Armagh shopping centre.
Police took action after a school child reported the behaviour of a man to their parents.
They said they were made aware on Tuesday of a series of incidents where a male was alleged to have been touching himself inappropriately in High Street Mall, Portadown.
The PSNI praised the child who alerted their parents who then did “absolutely the right thing in bringing the information to us directly”.
Police confirmed an arrest relating to the alleged incident at tea-time on Wednesday, saying: “”We were then able to put something in place and, working with the very astute High Street Mall security, were on hand just an hour ago to make an arrest for outraging public decency.
“The male is now in custody.
“If you have concerns about any behaviour, particularly around your child, bring that information to us. Done the right way, evidence can be gathered and arrests quickly made.”
