An Eritrean asylum seeker in Germany has been sentenced to a year and three months in prison after being found guilty of exposing himself and masturbating in public in front of women and a 12-year-old girl.
In several incidents, the man is also said to have started masturbating in front of the women, which included a 12-year-old girl on one occasion.
While bizarre, the case is not the first time recent migrants to Europe have been caught committing lewd acts in public including masturbation.
Staff at a swimming pool in Zwickau, Saxony, claimed to have caught migrants defecating in the children’s pool, masturbating into the jacuzzi, and terrorising other patrons.
Last year in Swansea, an Iraqi asylum seeker was caught masturbating outside a Primark shop and afterwards attempted to explain himself by saying he had run out of money for prostitutes.
