A pervert who exposed himself to a woman and touched himself inappropriately on a Tube train has been given a suspended jail sentence.
Vodzhan Ilievski targeted his victim while she travelled alone on the northbound Bakerloo train to Queens Park and they were stuck in a tunnel after leaving Kilburn Park.
Highbury Magistrates’ Court heard the 20-year-old from Ilford, frightened his victim so much she fled the train in tears at Queen’s Park.
Ilievski, who has a previous conviction for exposure, was arrested after officers reviewed CCTV of the incident.
This week he was found guilty of exposure again and given a three month jail sentence suspended for a year.
He was also ordered to pay the victim £200 compensation and court costs of £620.
PC Les Dunnett, investigating officers said: “I am pleased that Ilievski has been brought to justice. The nature and circumstances of this offence made it clear that Ilievski thought it acceptable to target a lone female, when the train had come to a temporary stop in a tunnel and when she had no one to turn to.
“We will treat all offences of this nature extremely seriously and encourage anyone who has been a victim, or sees someone acting inappropriately, to get in touch immediately.
“We will listen and we will work tirelessly to bring the offender to justice.”
