District Crown Prosecutor for CPS London North, Peter Alexandrou, said: “Alexander exposed himself to an off-duty police officer. His actions caused distress to the victim and there was a high risk that members of the public could have seen him.

“Everyone has the right to use London’s public spaces and parks without risk of encountering anti-social behaviour. Feeling safe should not be a luxury for the public.

“The CPS is determined to work with law enforcement agencies to combat all types of sexual harassment and seek justice for victims.”

Alexander was sentenced to a six-month conditional discharge, plus £625 costs and a £26 victim surcharge.
