Police have cautioned a man for masturbating on a Croydon bus.

The 32-year-old was arrested on Thursday after being identified from CCTV footage performing the sex act on the 64 bus from Thornton Heath to New Addington.

He was seen masturbating by another passenger on the bus, on which he travelled from East Croydon to South Park Hill Road in South Croydon, at about 11pm on February 9. 

He admitted indecent exposure following his arrest last week.

His arrest was one of 29 made in Croydon during Operation Big Wing, a day of police action largely targeting offences such as burglary and theft.

This is the kind of unpleasant person you wil encouter in Croydon these days. Croydon was once a pleasant place to vist, but i'm afraid it has become third world with its gangs, knives, guns, drugs, and sexual offenders travelling on the transport system, no wonder all the nice and pleasant people have now moved away from Croydon.

Mail Online report 18.9.13 - Swedish court rules it IS legal to masturbate in public (if it's not directed at anyone specific).

If the fella wants to do this in public, he'd be better off in Sweden !

Erm thanks Anne. I live in central Croydon and would certainly consider myself "nice and pleasant". As are several of my friends who also live here.

Truth is, this kind of incident occurs everywhere.

Only a caution! The Police must think this is not too bad a crime.

The paper and the Police have even given him anonymity!

No wonder sex crimes are up, and up, and up - just no deterrent.

I hope my daughter is not on the next bus he get's on.
Pathetic!

The culprit's name was not included in the report. Could it be that Newsquest (who own local Guardians) are in the pocket of their major advertisers, ie mosques?
