HALIFAX -- Police in Halifax say a 55-year-old man faces a breach of prohibition order charge stemming from a 2003 conviction for sexual assault.

James Michael Snow was arrested Wednesday while parked in a gold van near a daycare and indoor playground on Portland Street in Dartmouth.

Police say Snow is under a lifetime prohibition order that prevents him from attending public areas such as parks or public swimming areas where persons under the age of 14 are present or can be reasonably expected to be present.

He was arrested without incident and was to appear in court Thursday.
