Muslim pervert banned from every coffee shop in Bristol.
A Muslim man has been banned from every coffee shop in Bristol for carrying out lewd acts in front of young girls.
In August Yusef Khan was convicted of performing two lewd acts at Costa coffee shop in Cribbs Causeway.
He was given a three months prison sentence, suspended for two years, with two years’ supervision and an order to continue his counselling until 2015. But it then emerged that, while waiting to be sentenced, the 67-year-old struck at a Bristol branch of Starbucks. Khan, of Pennyroyal Grove in Stapleton, pleaded guilty to exposure.
Recorder Ignatius Hughes QC deferred sentence on him for three months and banned him from coffee shops in the meantime. He told Khan: “I don’t want to intervene with the programme you are on. "You’ve really got to engage with the programme that you are involved with and stop doing this. It must stop.”
Neil Treharne, prosecuting, said a 15-year-old girl and her friend had a coffee in the Starbucks and noticed Khan performing a sex act. Mr Treharne said: “She was very upset. She left the shop and called the police. She gave a very good description and the police made inquiries.”
When Khan was arrested he told police he touched himself intimately to comfort himself. He said he did not gain sexual gratification from it but could understand how someone could be offended by his behaviour. He added that he had been trying to keep under control by counselling, and had no idea the girl was aged 15 as he has poor eyesight.
Khan exposed himself at Costa coffee shop in May and June, the court heard. The incidents were reported to police and he told them he had been “fiddling”. Jonathan Stanniland, defending, urged for his client’s Thames Valley sex offender’s programme to continue. He said the former navy man turned caretaker may have offended in the way he did to deal with pressure. Mr Stanniland said: “The best thing is that he is re-wired not to do it again.”
Khan has a previous convictions for outraging public decency in 2011 and exposure in 2012.
