Pembroke Dock: Convicted rapist exposed himself to primary school children

Published

on

A CONVICTED rapist exposed himself to primary school children on successive days,  a judge heard today.

Alan Melville, aged 61, had been released early from a 12 year sentence imposed in 2012 for the rape of a six year old boy.

In September a man and two young sisters saw him masturbating in the kitchen of his flat in Bush Street, Pembroke Dock.

Melville today admitted two offences of indecent exposure and was jailed for a total of 15 months.

But, Swansea Crown Court, he had already been recalled to prison to continue serving the original sentence and will stay in jail beyond the new sentence.

Ian Wright, prosecuting, said on September 20 a father was driving his daughter home from school when she told him she had seen a naked man standing in the kitchen window of his home.

The following day he took a second daughter to school and left her in his van while he called into a newsagents. When he returned he found her in tears and she told him she had seen “a naked man shaking his willy.”

The father telephoned the police. When officers arrived they were approached by Peter Davies who complained that he had seen Melville naked and exposing himself the previous day.

Mr Wright said Melville was arrested and police discovered he had taken a photograph of himself naked below the waist only 30 minutes before they arrived.

Judge Paul Thomas–the same judge who jailed Melville in 2012–described him as an “unreformed, unrepentant sexual offender and paedophile who continues to be a risk.”

Judge Thomas said he did not know when Melville would be released as that was not up to him but he said he hoped the authorities would take the view that he was nowhere near ready.

Judge Thomas also explained in open court to the parents of the girls that his sentencing powers were limited to the maximum available for offences of exposure.

Melville is already registered with the police as a sex offender.

Judge Thomas issued a sexual harm prevention order restricting Melville’s activities after his eventual release.

Willy make the council fix the road?

Published

DRIVERS in and around the Maenclochog area are still recovering today after a hardened vandal spray-painted yellow penises along a stretch of road near Morvil.
The road, just off the B4313, was targeted with graffiti because of the number of potholes scattered along it’s length.
Locals have dubbed the cock-sure artist as ‘Wanksy’ and have discovered that whoever drew the penises also wrote ‘Follow the yellow d### road’.
Some of the penises have been drawn around more sizeable potholes, but simply pointing disapprovingly at the smaller ones.
If you want to report a pothole, the chosen method is still via the Pembrokeshire County Council website.
