A 30-year-old man has been jailed for 32 months for masturbating in front of two young girls at Wakefield Kirkgate station.

Samuel Robert Frost, of Talbot Road, Normanton, appeared for sentencing at Leeds Crown Court on 6 March after pleading guilty at an earlier hearing to engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child.

The court heard details of the offence, which took place at around 11.30am on 18 May 2014 at the station.

Frost had seen the two girls, who were aged 12 and 13 and both from the Wakefield area, and began touching himself.

He then followed them through the station subway and onto platform 1. He then fully exposed himself to his two young victims and masturbated in their direction.

“This was repulsive behavior by a sex offender”

Sergeant Jackie Wilson said: “Frost was already the subject of a lifetime Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO) at the time of the offence.

“Both girls showed extreme bravery and managed to take a photo of Frost. It was their quick thinking actions during what must have been an extremely frightening and distressing situation that helped us identify Frost and bring him to justice.

“This was repulsive behavior by a sex offender who sought out the girls at the station for his own gratification.”
