A 55-year-old man from Lewisham who exposed and touched himself inappropriately in front of women he targeted outside bus and tube stations has been convicted.

Serial flasher Leslie Malcolm, of Farley Road in Lewisham, SE6, admitted eight counts of exposure at the Inner Crown Court on July 1.

On each occasion, Malcolm would approach women in various places across Brixton, and expose his genitals, often making eye contact as he touched himself inappropriately.

A number of victims came forward to police, and the pervert was arrested in Lewisham on June 1, telling the officers as he was detained, "you know, it’s not like I weren’t expecting you."

Detective Sergeant Okikiola Okunola, from the Roads and Transport Policing Command, said Malcolm's behaviour was "quite frankly disgusting and perverse."

"I would firstly like to thank each victim for reporting his behaviour to police, it's because of them and the support they’ve have shown the investigation, we were able to bring Malcolm to justice."

“Thanks to some of the victims’ evidence as well as the forensic evidence left at one scene by Malcom, he had no choice but to plead guilty to the eight offences.”

There were eight offences committed by the 55-year-old reported between December 2019 and May 2020 across Brixton, including bus stops and outside Brixton Tube station.

He will be sentenced at the same court on Tuesday 1 September 2020.

Siwan Hayward, TfL’s Director of Policing, said: “No one should experience unwanted sexual behaviour on our transport network and we are determined to stamp it out.

"We were absolutely disgusted to hear of these incidents in Brixton and commend the victims for their bravery in coming forward to report them.

“We welcome Malcolm’s conviction and hope it sends a strong message that abuse won’t be tolerated. All reports of unwanted sexual behaviour are taken extremely seriously and fully investigated, so offenders can be caught and brought to justice.”
