A man has admitted exposing himself to eight young women over a two year period on buses in Kingston, Putney and west London.

Premlal Merenchige Salgado, 51, admitted masturbating at the back of the buses in view of the women between October 2010 and January this year.

He was only caught when police pieced together CCTV evidence, data from his Oyster card, and a semen stain found after one of his crimes.

Prosecutor Stephen Apted told Kingston Crown Court this afternoon: “All of the victims were female and aged between 16 and 26.

“The defendant would board the bus, would always sit on the lower deck right at the back of the bus, and select a victim who was sitting at the back.”

Salgado, of Angus Close, Chessington, used a rucksack to hide his actions from other passengers, while he masturbated and ejaculated in view of his victims, the court heard.

Salgado declined to comment outside court.

Judge Judith Coello told him: “These offences do merit a term of imprisonment, but the court will look at all sentencing options.”

He was bailed and told not to board buses within the M25, and is due to be sentenced next month following the preparation of probation reports.
