A man who exposed himself to schoolgirls in Bangor on two separate occasions has been jailed for twenty weeks.

Sean Eifion Williams, 24, denied the incident, but was found guilty by a district judge last month and sentenced yesterday for outraging public decency.

The incidents took place in May this year and occurred within 10 days of each other. The first incident took place near Belmont Road on Tuesday 9th May, the second incident occurred on 17th May, between St David’s Close and Maes Berea in Bangor, when Williams accosted another girl and exposed himself.

The incidents resulted in house to house enquires and high visibility patrols around local schools, police also issued an e-fit of the suspect before he was arrested.

Judge Gwyn Jones said: “Williams, of Llanllechid, Bangor, knew the locations, having been to school in that area. Only an immediate period of custody can be justified.”

Williams, was jailed for twenty weeks and ordered to sign the sex offenders register. A sexual harm prevention order has been placed on him and he was ordered to pay £1,115 costs.

Investigating Officer Detective Sergeant Chris Burrow, at Bangor Police station, said: “I’d like to acknowledge the strength and character of the victims and witnesses who had the courage in coming forward to assist this investigation and to ensure justice is served. This type of offence causes huge distress and fear, not just to the victims but also their families and the wider community.”
