LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a man after he committed a sex act in front of several children while at the water feature at Waterfront Park.

It happened Monday, just after 4 p.m., in the 200 block of E. Witherspoon Street, near N. Brook Street, at the park.

Police say they were called to the water fountain area after someone reported that a man was committing a sex act in public. When officers arrived, witnesses allegedly told them that they saw 40-year-old David Fox committing the act while inside the water park area.

According to an arrest report, one witness had her 6-year-old and 9-year-old sons with her at the time, and they saw the incident. Another witness had an 11-year-old, an 8-year-old, a 7-year-old, a 1-year-old and a 7-month-old with her -- all of whom saw what happened. A third witness had her 9-year-old nephew with her, who also saw the incident.

Police say they searched Fox and found four small plastic bags of marijuana, as well as a pipe used for smoking methamphetamine, and three small bags of suspected methamphetamine. 

Fox was arrested and charged with second degree indecent exposure, first degree sexual abuse, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance, according to the arrest report.

He is currently being held at Louisville Metro Corrections.
