Public Decency Offence

Police were called to Stonefield Public Park yesterday after a man was observed committing a public decency offence.

The male was observed sitting on a park bench on Friday 18 September in the sunshine with a bag on his lap. However, his hands were below the bag, and it quickly became apparent to others nearby, he was committing a lewd act in public.

With children playing nearby, he was confronted by adults and police were called. The male, in his 20’s was taken to Hamilton Police Station.

Further details and an initial alert about this story were reported yesterday on our Supporters page. It’s a reminder for parents to make sure their kids understand the dangers of talking to and being near strangers.
