MASON, OH (FOX19) -

A Mason lifeguard was accused of exposing himself to a young girl, city officials announced Monday.

The accused lifeguard was arrested in connection with the alleged incident Friday and is no longer allowed at any city facilities, City Manager Eric Hansen and Parks and Recreation Director Chrissy Avery wrote in a letter to community center members.

Two of the lifeguard supervisors will not be allowed to return, they wrote.

City employees will now also monitor the pools.

"We are sorry this happened, but are grateful that a young member was willing to speak up when she knew something was wrong," Hansen and Avery's letter states.

"If any of our members notice something wrong, we hope they report it to City employees. The City is committed to maintain excellence and appreciates the support of members, staff, partners, and our community in setting high standards."

The company that contracts the lifeguards agreed to additional training, background checks, and increased supervision, according to the city.

FOX19 NOW is working to gather additional information and will continue to update this story.
