A PERVERT from Dartford is to be sentenced having admitted performing a sex act on himself while staring at a young child on board a train near Gravesend.

Stefan Turansky, of Mayfair Road, committed the crime while sitting next to a woman and her two young children on a train heading to north Kent.

The family moved to escape the 37-year-old but he followed them until they jumped off at Gravesend station on July 29.

Earlier that evening, Turansky exposed and touched himself while staring at a 26-year-old woman after boarding the Charing Cross to Gillingham service at Dartford station.

Following a British Transport Police appeal, Turansky was arrested on September 5 at his home and charged with two offences of exposure and two offences of sexual activity in the presence of a child.

Appearing before Medway Magistrates’ Court the following day, he pleaded guilty to all four offences.

He will be sentenced at Maidstone Crown Court on March 17.
