It was claimed by Sgt Brian Jacob that the incident happened in the afternoon and when approached by a garda and asked what he was doing, the man said “I'm just masturbating, what’s it got to do with you.”

Granting free legal aid, Judge Desmond Zaidan commented that  he has a concern about the man’s state of mind especially if he is in proximity to schools.

The case was adjourned to October 27 for the Director of Public Prosecutions to decide how the case should proceed.
