camden toilet Gay sex thief banned from every toilet in Westminster and CamdenVILLAIN of the week is Charles Omishore, 32. He’s been banned from the West End, central Camden Town, every public toilet in  Westminster or Camden for the next five years.

Omishore, 32, pick-pocketed men while engaging in sexual activity in public toilets and Hyde Park’s rose garden.

Westminster Council’s cabinet member for community protection, Cllr Nickie Aiken, tells the Standard:

“We suspect Omishore has been getting away with this for so long because his victims have been reluctant to come forward and report attacks and thefts. A crime is a crime, and victims should feel they are able to report it, whatever the circumstances.”

Well, it’s not that simple. Section 1 of the 1967 Sexual Offences Act states  that it is illegal to have sex “in a lavatory to which the public have or are permitted to have access, whether on payment or otherwise”. 

The 2003 Sexual Offences states:

“A person guilty of an offence under this section [sex in a public lavatory] is liable on summary conviction, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 6 months or a fine not exceeding level 5 on the standard scale or both.”

So. Would you tell the police you’d been robbed whilst have oral sex in a public toilet? There were no other witnesses…

That was updated with clause 67 of the Sexual Offences Bill
