Ontario Provincial Police officers are looking for witnesses after an indecent act was committed at a conservation area in Leamington.

It happened around 6 p.m. Thursday. The complainant was walking along a path at the conservation area, off Talbot Street East, when they were approached by two men. One of them began an inappropriate conversation with the victim, then touched the victim inappropriately.
