Homebase store flasher gives shoppers an eyeful
Kerry Maj was charged with indecent exposure after he dropped his trousers inside a Homebase store in Watford and again in the car park, tapping on the window of a car and exposing his buttocks to a woman and her nine-year old daughter.

Mr Maj was given a suspended three-month jail sentence and four-year Asbo, banning him from consuming alcohol in public or being drunk in a public place, after he pleaded guilty to the charge.

The incident took place at night on Friday, May 1 this year.

Witnesses reported a bare-chested man entering the store on St Albans Road, where he then dropped his trousers. The store manager later found the man squatting in the car park "with his trousers round his ankles...swaying and wiggling, which caused him to expose himself".

Mr Maj, who was said to be highly intoxicated at the time, was eventually arrested nearby. The unemployed Watford resident has 24 previous convictions, including sexual assault and robbery.
