Severn Township senior charged following alleged indecent act

An 83-year-old Severn Township man is facing a number of charges following an alleged indecent act in Orillia.

According to the OPP, officers were called to an address in the north end of the city around 10:30 p.m. Thursday (Jan. 23).

“A concerned neighbour had spotted an elderly male looking in a window and called police. The male fled the scene but not before the thoughtful neighbour could get a detailed description,” reads a media release.

“Responding officers located a male a short distance away and were able to positively identify the male as the suspect.”

Ronald Leyzack has been charged with indecent act – public place, indecent exposure to a person under 16 years of age, voyeurism, criminal harassment, and four counts of trespassing at night.

He was held for a bail hearing and is set to appear in Barrie court on Jan. 27.
