A 35-year-old woman has been arrested for committing an indecent act in a public place and exposing herself to a person under 16.

Police say on Monday afternoon, staff at a “public facility” called them to report a suspicious woman who had been in the shower for over an hour.

The woman, of no fixed address, was held overnight in jail after being assessed by staff at Kootenay Lake Hospital under the Mental Health Act.

She’s due in court today.

Napping man charged with mischief

A 45-year-old man faces a mischief charge after being found sleeping on a couch on the third floor of a Nelson commercial building on Front Street.

The complaint came Monday evening. Police say office staff called them several times over the last couple of weeks to report a suspicious man in the lobby.

They previously warned the suspect and escorted him out of the building without pressing charges.

This time he was arrested and held overnight pending a court appearance today.
