Caught in the act ... twice

A SEX pest caught in the act of publicly pleasuring himself in his vehicle twice in a month has avoided jail time.

Roy Anthony Neumann was charged with committing an indecent act in public after a passer-by spotted him engaged in an act of masturbation, within view of the skate bowl in Warwick's Queens Park on March 6.

Police alleged at the time that Neumann was watching a video on his mobile phone while performing the act on himself.

He was charged with a second such count on March 21, when police officers located him inside his vehicle while it was parked on Horsman Rd, in the vicinity of the Glennie Heights SS.

Neumann, 48, had his case transferred from Warwick to the Ipswich Magistrates Court where he was convicted on both counts of indecency on April 24.

A spokesman for the Warwick Police Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) said public self-pleasuring was an offence under the Queensland Criminal Code.

"In the first instance, this person was located by a member of the public at approximately 2.20pm on the day in question inside his vehicle, which was parked near the skate bowl," the spokesman said.

"He was seated in the driver's seat of the vehicle with his underwear lowered and engaged in the act.

"On the second occasion police were called to Horsman Rd where his vehicle had been observed and Neumann was arrested for the same offence."

The Horsman Rd incident prompted calls to the Daily News as well as to police on the day, from concerned parents who had been walking their children home from Glennie Heights State School and who had seen Neumann openly masturbating inside his car.

One mother claimed at the time that Neumann's vehicle had been observed on Horsman Rd on previous occasions at school finishing times.

Neumann was sentenced in the Ipswich Magistrates Court to six months imprisonment, but was granted immediate parole.
