An Eastbourne man who indecently exposed himself to women in shops has been sent to prison.

Jimmy Rabbeth, 20, of Enys Road, was jailed for a year and a half at Cambridge Crown Court yesterday (December 4) after pleading guilty to five counts of indecent exposure and carrying an offensive weapon, said police.

He was also given a 10-year extension on his Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO).

Officers said the court heard how Rabbeth sneaked up on lone women in Cambridge and intimately touched himself on five occasions between November 2017 and January of this year.

He was arrested on Sunday, 31 January, at his Eastbourne home after officers identified him through CCTV, said police.

During the investigation officers said they were made aware of another incident of indecent exposure on a train, during which he was caught carrying a knuckle duster.

DC Sean Denby said, “Rabbeth sought out lone women and made them feel uncomfortable for his own satisfaction.

“His actions were nothing short of disturbing and this sentence reflects how seriously we and the courts take this kind of behaviour.”
