“A male advised he was supervising some children in a hallway when he walked past a room which had its door propped open,” police said in a news release.

“He looked in the open door and saw a male standing in the room masturbating and looking at him.”

The service added that the man moved the children away from the door and called police.

When officers arrived, the suspect handed them German identification. The 33-year-old was then charged with committing an indecent act.

“ was held for a bail hearing after advising he is returning to Germany soon and might not return for court,” police said.

However, the man was released by a judge on Sunday and ordered to appear in court by video on Tuesday. It’s unclear if his passport was seized or if the man is still in Canada.
