Alleged peeping tom granted remand

A 27-year-old central Christchurch man charged with doing an indecent act in the women's toilets at the Botanic Gardens has been granted a registar's remand without plea at the Christchurch District Court.

Daniel Wayne Edwards, a cleaner, is alleged to have committed a peeping tom offence by trying to look into a woman's toilet cubicle about 7.45pm last Friday.

He was remanded by a registrar without a court appearance before a judge, and will apply for legal aid before his next appearance on January 30.
