A man was arrested, charged and convicted of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child after pleasuring himself in front of two young girls at a train station, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.
Now, the 30-year-old man has been jailed for 32 months for pleasuring himself in front of the two young girls at the Wakefield Kirkgate station.
Samuel Robert Frost of Talbot Road in Normanton, appeared for sentencing at the Leeds Crown Court on Friday, after pleading guilty at an earlier hearing to engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child.
The court heard details of the offense, which took place around 11:30 a.m. on Sunday. Frost had seen the two girls, who were aged 12 and 13 and both from the Wakefield area, and began touching himself.
He then followed them through the station and onto platform 1. He fully exposed himself to the two young victims and pleasured himself in their direction.
“This was repulsive behavior by a sex offender who sought out the girls at the station for his own gratification,” the prosecutor said.
