Toronto Police have made an arrest in the case of a man who allegedly exposed himself, in the children's section of a bookstore in Midtown Toronto.

47 year old William Shorten was arrested in Toronto on Tuesday, and charged with indecent act and fail to comply with probation.

It's not the first time he's been arrested for something like this.

As a matter of fact, Shorten has been convicted 12 times of crimes involving children aged 5 to 14, at bookstores and libraries in Toronto.

In those cases, Shorten would go to the children's section of a bookstore, before exposing himself.

Constable Victor Kwong with Toronto Police say they are worried there could be more victims out there.

"If anyone does recall seeing someone who looks like the photo we've put out, and has been a victim of some sort of sexual assault or indecent act, to give us a call."

But Kwong says there have been no other reports of any indecent act, that he's aware of.
