Man exposes himself near school

A man has indecently exposed himself outside a primary school in Sydney’s inner west, police say.

Parents at the school, which is located in Fletcher Street, Marrickville, allegedly saw the man hiding in bushes with his genitals exposed about 8.30am (AEDT) on Wednesday.

After yelling at the man he ran into a nearby church.

The 50-year-old man was arrested in the churchyard a short time later.

He was charged with wilful and obscene exposure and was granted conditional bail on Wednesday to reappear before Newtown Local Court on February 16.


Clearly the exhibitionist repented of his wretched deed and entered the church to atone for his sins and put his faith in the Almighty.  Unfortunately, his faith was misplaced and the police got to him before God did!  Nevertheless we understand that the prospect of facing a court has given the culprit a firm resolve to sin no more, and an even stronger resolve not to hide in churches in the future!
