Po­lice ar­rest naked man for sex act

The Chronicle - - News -

A MAN was caught car­ry­ing out a sex act on him­self wear­ing only a cap and a back­pack.

Sol Mayan was seen by two 16-year-old boys at Cow Hill on New­cas­tle’s Town Moor on April 21 and they were left shocked by what they saw.

At North Ty­ne­side Mag­is­trates’ Court on Wed­nes­day, it was said the teenagers were walk­ing on the Town Moor at around 7.15pm when they saw Mayan stand­ing in the wood­land area.

He was naked and had noth­ing but a cap and back­pack on, the court heard.

The boys saw him per­form­ing a sex act on him­self and were “scared to keep walk­ing”, it was said.

The po­lice were then called and Mayan, 38, was ar­rested.

In a state­ment to the court, one of the teenagers said: “I was very wor­ried and shocked by the in­ci­dent.

“Af­ter a day out with my friend, I wasn’t ex­pect­ing to be con­fronted by this male. I was in­tim­i­dated and shocked. “I was scared to walk past him.” Mayan, of Bewick Court, New­cas­tle, pleaded guilty to a charge of ex­po­sure and could face a spell be­hind bars.

In mit­i­ga­tion, Greg Stevens told the court this was not a pre-planned of­fence and the de­fen­dant had not gone out to tar­get any­one.
