Man committed lewd act in train carriage



A 57-year-old man who fondled himself on the Enterprise train in a carriage where three children were present was yesterday handed a four-month prison sentence.

Belfast Crown Court heard David Bryan Douglas, from Dufferin Avenue in Bangor, has a criminal record for similar offences.

Crown prosecutor Philip Henry said the incident occurred on the Belfast-bound Enterprise train on February 23 this year, when a woman told a member of staff a man was rubbing his groin underneath his trousers.

Three children were present but did not see Douglas committing the lewd act on the train.

A defence barrister said that while her client couldn’t remember the offence, he “didn’t deny it”.
