A COM­MUTER who was caught get­ting a gobble on the busy con­course of a rail­way sta­tion has been jailed.

Wil­liam Batch­e­lor, 47, was ar­rested after a woman was spot­ted giv­ing him a slob­bery BLOWJOB while other trav­ellers edged around them as they rushed to catch trains in­side Manch­ester’s Vic­to­ria Sta­tion.

It’s the same sta­tion where three peo­ple were stabbed on New Year’s Eve.

Dur­ing Batch­e­lor’s brief en­counter a po­lice­woman in­ter­vened and asked the pair to stop their 4pm romp – but they ig­nored her and even ac­cused the WPC of “abus­ing her power”.

Both were de­tained when the of­fi­cer called for back- up. It emerged Batch­e­lor and his fe­male com­pan­ion were both drunk and were wait­ing to catch a tram on Novem­ber 27 last year.

Batch­e­lor, from Lees, near Old­ham, ad­mit­ted out­rag­ing pub­lic de­cency be­fore Manch­ester JPs and was locked up for 15 weeks.

The woman, who was not named, is on the run after fail­ing to at­tend at an ear­lier hear­ing.

Prose­cu­tor Robin Lynch said: “At 4pm he was in a busy rail­way sta­tion, at Manch­ester Vic­to­ria. An of­fi­cer saw him and a fe­male by a me­mo­rial, and at the time she was grab­bing his pe­nis, so she be­gan to walk to­wards them to warn them about the acts as there were peo­ple and chil­dren around.

“Be­fore she reached them, she then bent down and be­gan to per­form oral sex on the de­fen­dant. The of­fi­cer PLAT­FORM BJ: Batch­e­lor shouted at them to stop. They be­came ver­bally abu­sive to her, and said she was ly­ing in what she saw, say­ing she was abus­ing her power. She stayed with them un­til they were ar­rested.

“They were both in drink at the time.”

Batch­e­lor’s de­fence said: “He has pleaded guilty. He com­mit­ted an act of a sex­ual na­ture in a pub­lic place.

“He is a sin­gle man liv­ing alone and has not worked for some time.”
