Toronto Police have charged a 44 year old Toronto man, after someone spotted him allegedly surfing child porn, while out in the open at Yonge/Dundas square.

It was on Sunday afternoon that a passer-by called police.

Philip Publuske was arrested and faces 6 charges in all, including possession of child pornography, accessing child pornography, and four counts of breach of recognizance.

He's believed to be the same man, arrested 3 years ago as part of a worldwide child abuse ring, that saw 184 people arrested and 230 children rescued.

Constable Victor Kwong with Toronto Police says it was thanks to a sharp eyed citizen, that they were able to make the bust.

"We have to thank the members of the public that notified us. It's alleged that on Sunday, they had seen a man surfing the web on his laptop, and it was the content of what he was surfing that led them to call police. It's alleged that this man was surfing child porn." Kwong told Newstalk1010.

Kwong says this man is known to police.

"The breach of recognizance means he has been before the courts and had made several promises, of which he has now breached.
