A 44-year-old man will face court after he was charged for allegedly filming people using a public toilet in Lismore earlier this month.

Police say that around 10am on Thursday 8 March,  the man was using a public toilet facility in Union Street when he noticed a man looking over the stall wall at him.

Police attended and allegedly found a mobile phone on the man that contained multiple images of people using public toilet facilities.

About 11.30am yesterday (Thursday 22 March), the man was arrested at a house in Corndale and taken to Lismore police station and charged with committing an act of indecency and two counts of filming a person in a private act without consent.

He was refused bail and is expected to appear in Lismore Local Court today (Friday).

Investigations are continuing.
