A BUS passenger who masturbated in front of a woman on a nearby seat has been jailed for three months.
Adem Ramadan, 22, of Monk's Park, Wembley, was riding on the 222 service between Uxbridge and Hounslow when the incident occurred on July 27 last year.
As the bus travelled along Station Approach, West Drayton, Ramadan committed the sexual act on himself in full view of the female passenger. He continued to follow the aggrieved despite her attempts to avoid him.
He was subsequently charged with outraging public decency but denied he had committed the offence.
Appearing at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on February 28, Ramadan was found guilty of the crime and told that because it had been a prolonged indecent act, only a jail term would suffice. He was given a 12-week sentence.
