Jail for Merseyside man who exposed himself to teen on train

A 50 year old man who exposed himself to a teenager, on a Merseyside Train, has been jailed for 26 weeks, following a British Transport Police investigation. Alfred Thomas, from Mount Pleasant, Waterloo, has been sentenced at Liverpool Magistrates' Court, after pleading guilty to indecent exposure. He must also pay a victim surcharge of £115. The Court heard how, on Friday, 13 May 2016, Thomas' 18 year old victim had boarded the 6.20am train, from Waterloo Station. Thomas, who also boarded at Waterloo, sat opposite her and struck up a conversation. When she stood to leave the train at Moorfields Station she glanced back and saw Thomas exposing himself to her. She quickly moved carriages and left the train in a distressed state, immediately alerting staff. Thomas was identified after he was recognised from a British Transport Police appeal online. Officers arrested him at his home. In Police interview he admitted the offence, but could give no reason for his actions.  Investigating officer PC Shaun Lee said:- "This was an incredibly frightening experience for the young girl, who was shaken and upset by Thomas' actions. His disgusting behaviour that day continues to affect his victim who was left feeling vulnerable and intimidated by what he did. She is to be commended for coming forward and reporting the incident. We will not tolerate inappropriate sexual behaviour of any kind on the rail network and will do all we can to bring offenders to justice. We ask all rail passengers to report incidents to us so we can fully investigate."
