Surrey man charged with indecent public act

A Surrey man found masturbating by Transit Police near their New Westminster offices is facing two charges.

A Surrey man found masturbating by Transit Police near their Brewery District offices is facing two charges and been ordered not to be in the Sapperton area.

A Transit Police release said two officers starting their patrol from the headquarters near the Sapperton SkyTrain about 6 p.m. on Aug. 13 saw a man reclining on the grass adjacent to a playground used by a daycare centre next door, which was closed at the time, with his pants down around his knees and committing a sexual act with a vibrator.

The officers noticed he had an open backpack with crystal meth and marijuana. The police also determined the man had a probation order prohibiting him from possessing tools or consuming alcohol or drugs.

David Paul Mathon, 48, has been charged with committing an indecent act in a public place and breach of probation. He was released on the condition he not be within 100 metres of a daycare, a park, a swimming pool or any other area where children might be and he is not allowed to remove any clothing covering his pelvic area unless in a private location.

In addition, Mathon is not to go in an area bounded by Richmond, Sherbrooke and Cumberland streets and Brunette Avenue unless he is taking the SkyTrain through the area without getting off.

His next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 28.
