Police have released a shocking video showing a man exposing himself on a North Yorkshire train.
Joshua Lionel Richardson, 31, can be seen running along the aisle of the Northern Rail service from Hull to Scarborough exposing his private parts to passengers.
Richardson, now of Bridlington Road, Wold Newton, committed the crimes at 8.30pm on Saturday 30 July last year.
He made off from the train in Filey and later that evening headed to local pubs – despite being subject to a lifetime ban through the Pub Watch scheme in both Filey and Hunmanby.
Richardson was denied service and asked to leave.
He responded by throwing a plant pot through a front window and a bottle through an upstairs bedroom window, narrowly missing a sleeping child.
Richardson was found guilty to the offences at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court last Thursday, and jailed for six months.
Magistrates gave him a longer prison sentence for breaching a community order that was imposed for another exposure incident on 20 November 2021 at Filey Sports Club.
In full view of members and close to children who were attending a birthday party in the function room, Richardson exposed himself on several occasions.
Richardson was also made subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
Police Sergeant Adam Marshall, of the Filey Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Joshua Richardson has a history of drunken and aggressive behaviour which has continued to have a negative impact on residents.
“Alarmingly, the Sexual Harm Prevention Order has not quashed his behaviour.
“Not only were some children literally exposed to his disturbing actions when he removed his clothing at Filey Sports Club in November 2021, members of the public travelling on the train last year were also subjected to it.
“The damage he caused to the pubs was also shocking and could have resulted in serious injuries.
“This completely reckless criminal behaviour will not be tolerated by our policing team and our community partners.
“We will keep doing everything we can to ensure Filey remains a safe place for everyone.”
