Man charged after he was spotted ‘moves’ on a bus in the Southport area.
Southport Police say a man was charged with indecent exposure after an incident last week.
Detective Inspector Peter Deans says officers were called to the scene of a disturbance at around 4.30pm on October 28.
They say the suspect was standing outside a bus stop in the area of Mascot Drive and St George’s Street.
Det Insp Deans said a man had been seen ‘moved around’.
He said it appeared to be an act of sexual gratification, but he would not be drawn on the details of the man’s alleged behaviour.
Police allege the suspect approached the bus stop, and while it was parked, the bus driver tried to stop the man from moving towards the bus.
Police say the man was then approached by a man in the crowd, who began to push him to the ground.
The man then allegedly ‘move’ him towards a nearby car, and as he tried to get away, the man allegedly punched him.
Det Inspector Deans told Newsbeat: “It’s just very upsetting to see someone who is not in the situation get pushed down and pushed to the point of being assaulted.”
He said police were also looking for the driver of the bus, who is currently in police custody.
Det Supt Deans confirmed police are still investigating what led up to the incident, and the matter will be referred to the Crown Prosecution Service.
