Aaron Voon, a child psychiatrist accused of video-taping a boy in a washroom at West Edmonton Mall, was arrested last night in Australia on charges of possession of child exploitation material.
Voon was arrested Thursday night at Perth Airport after returning from Canada.
He made a brief court appearance Friday and is being held in custody.
Police issued a news release saying a 41 year old has been charged after an investigation by Australia's Joint Anti Child Exploitation Team.
Using information provided by ALERT's Internet Child Exploitation team in Edmonton, Australia police searched Voon's home and business, where they allegedly found "a number of images classified as child exploitation material," police said.
Voon was a respected child psychiatrist who worked at the Successful Development and Therapy Centre in Perth, where he treated hundreds of patients under the age of 10.
The media reports quote police as saying no link has been established between the children he works with and the pornographic material on his computer.
Voon is scheduled to appear in court again on Wednesday.
Edmonton police say Voon used a camera to record a 10-year-old boy in the washroom at the movie theatre in West Edmonton Mall on May 22. Voon is charged of possession of child pornography, making child pornography and voyeurism.
Last week, an Edmonton judge granted Voon bail with conditions, including that he put up $75,000 cash and stay away from anyone under the age of 18 unless accompanied by their parent.
Voon is also not allowed to use a mobile device equipped with a camera, and cannot attend parks or swimming areas where children are present.
