Flasher struck two times in Holyrood

Have your say

A MAN has admitted exposing himself in Holyrood Park.

Ali Al-Moghrabi, 25, was caught on two occasions flashing and committing a sex act on himself.

Fiscal depute Bruce Macrosson told Edinburgh Sheriff Court that Al-Moghrabi, of Parson’s Green Terrace, was seen acting indecently in bushes at the park and that witnesses contacted police. Mr Macrosson added that when he was caught he told police: “’I’m sorry, please let me go. I will never do it again.”

Al-Moghrabi pleaded guilty to two charges of public indecency on June 24 and 28 this year.

Sheriff Deidre MacNeill QC added his name to the sex offenders register. Sentence was deferred until next month.
