Police arrest naked man for sex act
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.
