An accused “serial masturbator” was caught in Australia after four years of complaints thanks in part to Google Maps.
According to news.com.au, police arrested a 43-year-old man this week in Brisbane following a public “masturbation spree” that lasted from 2015 to 2019.
During that time, numerous women reported seeing the individual performing the lewd act along several suburban streets. The man frequented one street in Windsor so frequently that police discovered his image had been captured by a Google Street View vehicle.
Police say the image aided their investigation and eventually led to the man being charged with 27 counts of indecent acts.
A spokesman for the Queensland Police is now seeking to determine whether anyone else was victim to the man’s behavior.
“It could be possible more offenses have occurred over the extended time frame,” the spokesman said. “What we’re doing is appealing to the public to see if they notice the outfit and they might be able to piece together an incident.”
