A Perth woman has been left shocked and terrified after she found a stranger masturbating outside her bedroom window early on Saturday morning. Terrified, Julia woke up her sleeping husband and he went outside the investigate the source of the noise. Julia’s husband found a man standing at the side of their property with an apron on, washing his hands with their outdoor tap. Julia said it wasn’t until she and her husband checked their CCTV footage that they realised what the man had been doing on their property. Julia said the CCTV footage captured the man pulling down his pants and committing an obscene act for about 10 minutes.
Julia reported the incident to Cannington Police, and detectives took her CCTV footage for examination. While police were conducting their investigation on Sunday, Julia’s husband Scott went to a nearby grocery store for their weekly shop. Police were called and the man was arrested and charged with a committing an obscene act in public. He was released from police custody less than 12 hours after being arrested, which shocked Julia who said police did not tell her of the fact. Julia said she had since taken to sleeping with an axe.
Julia also urged homeowners to check their CCTV regularly, as she and her husband only realised what had happened during a review of their cameras. Julia’s last name has been removed to protect her privacy.
Tube pusher guilty: CCTV shows moment 91-year-old man sent ‘flying’ onto train tracks
Sir Robert Malpas, a former Eurotunnel boss, was attacked as he walked along the platform wearing a brown Burberry raincoat, suit and tie, and carrying an umbrella on 27 April. He was approached from behind by Paul Crossley, who had a hood pulled over his cap, before being sent sprawling onto the tracks. Sir Robert, a retired industrialist who was knighted by the Queen in 1999, was rescued by heroic passer-by Riyad El Hussani, who leapt onto the tracks to save him just one minute before the next train’s arrival. The violent attack left Sir Robert with life-changing injuries, including a fractured pelvis and a gash to the head requiring 12 stitches. On Friday, Crossley, 46, was found guilty of two counts of attempted murder at the Old Bailey.
A second Tube passenger, Tobias French, managed to keep his balance when he had earlier been pushed by Crossley as a train pulled into Tottenham Court Road station. Crossley told jurors his victims were chosen at random but claimed he had not intended to kill them. He sobbed after the jury left court following the verdicts, removing his glasses to wipe away tears. In a statement read to jurors during the trial, Sir Robert said he had been to a pensioners’ lunch in central London before using his freedom pass for his planned journey to Oxford Circus on the central line.

Banksy pulls off daring CCTV protest in London
The graffiti artist Banksy has pulled off one of his most audacious stunts – an enormous protest against Britain’s surveillance society painted just feet from a CCTV camera. The guerrilla artwork appeared on a wall above a Post Office yard off Oxford Street in central London on Monday morning. His actions are filmed by a policeman next to a barking dog. The secretive artist’s achievement is made more impressive by the fact that the piece is several stories high – meaning he had to erect temporary scaffolding before slipping away unnoticed. Banksy frequently touches on political issues in his work.
Last month a Banksy-style painting depicting two children pledging allegiance to supermarket giant Tesco appeared on the wall of a north London pharmacy. It was interpreted as support for the growing campaign to ban free plastic bags. He has also painted several works on the walls of Bethlehem, including one of a dove of peace wearing a flak jacket. Famously secretive, Banksy is believed to have only given one newspaper interview, although he has left various clues indicating he is a secondary school drop-out who was born in or around Bristol in 1974. A recent auction in October earned £540,000 for 11 pieces, four times the pre-sale estimate.
