    A reoffending exhibitionist arrested on the Namur towpath

    A 57 year old man was arrested on Sunday at around 10am, for exposing himself to a young woman. The woman was doing her morning jog along the towpath on the Meuse, the Namur Prosecutor’s office has said. The 57 year old man is already known to police, as he has been charged with similar offences before. The man pulled his trousers down and exposed himself in front of the young woman.

    The police linked this incident to others that occurred on the 4th and 11th of June. The man was therefore arrested and charged with 6 other similar offences.

    He had already been convicted by the Correctional Tribunal before these incidents, but got probationary parole. One of the conditions was to see a psychiatrist. The man, from Mouscron, said he was aware he needed more therapy.
