Central Okanagan man charged with indecent act near water park stands trial

John Charles Allan was charged in connection to an incident in a Lake Country park

A Central Okanagan man is on trial for indecent exposure following an incident at a Lake Country water park a few years ago.

John Charles Allan, 64, is accused of indecent exhibition in a public place following an arrest that was made in June 2017 at Swalwell Park.

On June 20, Lake Country RCMP responded to a report of an alleged fight in the parking lot of the waterpark located on Bottom Wood Lake Road.

Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey said at the time that a man confronted another man who was allegedly observed committing an indecent act while he sat inside his vehicle parked adjacent to the waterpark.
