Man masturbating and rubbing his nipples in street slapped by worried onlooker

A man was shocked when a stranger suddenly dropped his trousers and performed a sex act in front of him in the the street.

He slapped Daniel Ash, 25, after spotting him walking towards him while masturbating and rubbing his nipples in the early hours on September 5.

Ash was on medication to help with his "20 urges a day" when he was arrested in Neath, south Wales.

Craig Jones, prosecuting at Swansea Crown Court, said the male victim was walking home when he was approached by Ash who had his T-shirt over his head and his jogging bottoms around his ankles.

Mr Jones said as the defendant walked towards man he was masturbating and rubbing his nipples, WalesOnline reports.

The court heard the victim was was angry and concerned at the behaviour and slapped Ash to get him to keep his distance. The defendant ran off and the victim called police.

Ash, of Briton Ferry Road, Melin, Neath, admitted exposure. The court heard he has three previous convictions for five offences including sexual activity with a child under 13 when he was a juvenile and outraging public decency in 2018. This last offence had seen him following an elderly woman in Neath town centre while pleasuring himself through a large tear in the crotch of his trousers.

He initially denied touching himself, saying he had just been "adjusting himself", but later told officers that he has "around 20 urges a day" which he satisfies by masturbating – something he usually does in the house but "sometimes" does outside.

Dan Griffiths, for Ash, invited the court to follow the recommendations of a pre-sentence report in the case.

Recorder Christopher Clee QC said the report made it clear Ash posed a "very high risk" of committing sexual offences and while he could send Ash to prison for what would be a short period of time a better solution be a sentence that allowed probation to work with the defendant to address the root causes of his offending.

Ash was sentenced to a two-year community order with a rehabilitation requirement and must abide by a 9pm to 9am curfew for the next three months. He will be on the sex offenders register for five years.
