Police say the victim was in the men's changing room at the Thornhill Aquatic & Recreation Centre on May 5 when he was approached by a stranger who made "unwanted comments that were sexual in nature" while exposing himself.

The victim didn't engage with the man and left the change room.

"The suspect also exited the change room, and while sitting in a common area of the recreation centre, once again made unwanted sexual comments to the victim as he walked by," police said in a news release.

On Wednesday, police announced Calvin Edwin Oatway of Calgary, 64, has been charged with one count of commodification of sexual services from a person under the age of 18 and one count of committing an indecent act.

As of Wednesday, six donations had been made.Anyone with information on the incident in which Oatway is charged is asked to call police at 403-266-1234.
