‘ Who is the vic­tim?’ asks man caught pulling pud

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

A MAN ac­cused of wank­ing at a rail­way sta­tion told cops, “It’s a vic­tim­less crime!”

Ja­son Leonard Shaw was de­tained af­ter of­fi­cers were alerted to CCTV footage of the in­ci­dent.

Re­fus­ing bail, a judge de­scribed Shaw, 47, as hav­ing no in­sight into his al­leged be­hav­iour at the Lis­burn sta­tion, Coun­try Antrim.

In court, Lord Jus­tice Stephens pointed out: “He wanted to know what the prob­lem was with mas­tur­bat­ing in pub­lic.”

Shaw, of Belfast, faces charges of in­de­cent ex­po­sure and out­rag­ing pub­lic de­cency.

Po­lice were called af­ter Shaw had been spot­ted pulling his pud near the sta­tion’s rear en­trance.

Shaw was ar­rested af­ter be­ing found at the scene with his trouser but­tons un­done.

Dur­ing in­ter­views he made no com­ment, but asked if he wanted to add any­thing, he stated that he wanted to know who the vic­tim was for him mas­tur­bat­ing in pub­lic.

The judge dis­missed an ap­pli­ca­tion for bail based on the risk of his re- of­fend­ing.

He added: “I don’t con­sider any court or­der would pre­vent him from do­ing the same again in fu­ture.”
