A SE­RIAL flasher who aban­doned his bike af­ter a cop­per caught him ex­pos­ing him­self was caught af­ter his girl­friend re­ported the cy­cle stolen.

Paul Bris­ter, 33, was spot­ted on sev­eral oc­ca­sions in Ramshead Woods, Seacroft, Leeds, over a six-month pe­riod.

A court heard staff work­ing at a com­pany nearby made a string of com­plaints about see­ing Bris­ter.

Af­ter his ar­rest he ad­mit­ted he would sneak out of work to ex­pose him­self and he wanted peo­ple to see him.

Bris­ter, of Kent­mere cres­cent, Seacroft, pleaded guilty to three of­fences of in­de­cent ex­po­sure and one of out­rag­ing pub­lic de­cency.

He was made the sub­ject of a three-year com­mu­nity or­der and told to at­tend a sex of­fender treat­ment pro­gramme.
