Police catch man red-handed masturbating next to teen girls on Sydney train

A MAN has been arrested and charged after he was allegedly caught red-handed masturbating next to two teenage girls in separate incidents on a train in Sydney.

The first incident is alleged to have occurred on a train travelling between Chatswood and Town Hall at around 5.20pm on Wednesday.

The man allegedly sat next to a 14-year-old girl and committed an “act of indecency” while attempting to cover himself with a backpack.

The girl got off the train and alerted officers from Police Transport Command’s Operation Artemis.

Then, around 3.30pm on Thursday, plain-clothed officers spotted the same man exposing himself and committing an act of indecency while sitting next to a 15-year-old girl on a train from Central to West Ryde.

He was immediately arrested and taken to Ryde Police Station where he was charged with two counts of committing an act of indecency with a child under the age of 16, and wilful and obscene exposure.

The man, whose age has not been revealed, was granted conditional bail and will front Burwood Local Court on Monday 22 May.
