A 34-year-old Truro man is facing a number of charges after allegedly engaging in an indecent act in front of children on Friday in Dartmouth.

Police say they received a tip just after 2 p.m. that a man was masturbating inside his vehicle on Sheridan Street while attempting to speak to two girls, aged nine and 11, who were walking in the area.

According to police, there was no physical contact between the suspect and the two alleged victims, but the children believed that was the accused’s intent.

Police say Scott Vincent Dow was arrested a short time later on Woodland Avenue in connection with the incident. He is facing one count of committing an indecent act, two counts of invitation to sexual touching and two counts of sexual assault.

Dow has since been released on bail with conditions to refrain from contact with children under the age of 16.
