Pervert banned from all Bristol coffee shops after exposing himself in Costa and Starbucks

A 67-year-old man has found himself banned from every coffee shop in Bristol.

He admitted exposing himself at a branch of Costa, but while waiting to be sentenced, he again exposed himself to two 15-year-old girls in Starbucks.

In the first instance, Yusef Khan was seen performing two lewd acts at the Costa in Cribbs Causeway shopping centre.

Mr Khan, of Stapleton, Bristol, pleaded guilty to exposure and was given a six-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, at Bristol Crown Court.

When arrested, he had told police he didn’t gain sexual gratification from his acts but could “understand” how someone could be offended by his behaviour.

Jonathan Stanniland, defending, urged for his client’s sex offender’s programme to continue.

“The best thing is that he is rewired not to do it again,” he said.
