A man has been charged after he made sexual gestures towards police when he was discovered walking the streets of St Marys, exposed from the waist down.
On Thursday, July 18 police received reports from a taxi driver that a man wearing a black hoodie and red shorts jumped onto the front of his vehicle when he was stopped at the traffic lights on Station Street, before running off.
Police attended and located the 18-year-old Mt Druitt man and issued a move on direction.
As police were leaving they spotted the man again, this time without pants or underwear.
As they approached the man, he proceeded to masturbate towards them. He was arrested and charged with ‘wilful and obscene exposure in a public space’.
He is to appear at Penrith Local Court on Thursday, August 8.
