A MAN has admitted committing a lewd act in an alleyway - only four days after he was released from a previous sentence.

Angelo Mechen admitted outraging public decency at Kidderminster Magistrates Court.

The court heard police arrested Mechen after a member of the public reported seeing the man in the alleyway at around 2pm on Friday, March 13. He had been released from a previous sentence on March 9.

Detectives from West Mercia's Management of Sexual and Violent Offenders (MOSOVO) team were praised by the Crown Prosecution Service for staying on duty 11 hours after their shift finished to deal with the case.

Detective Sergeant Alexander Denny said: "I am pleased with the outcome this morning at Kidderminster Magistrates Court.

"Officers from both the uniformed Patrol team and detectives from my Offender Management unit worked diligently in order to present Mechen to the courts at the earliest opportunity.

"The officers from the Offender Management team based at Castle Street work in partnership with a variety of partners, notably including the National Probation Service.

"We pro-actively identify breaches of supervisory instruments such as Sexual Harm Prevention Orders in order to mitigate any risks posed to the community of Worcester by those offenders that we manage.

"Worcester remains an incredibly safe place to live, work and visit and instances such as this are rare.

"When they do occur you can be assured that the various policing departments will work together swiftly to bring those responsible to justice at the earliest opportunity."

Mechen was remanded to appear at Worcester Crown Court for sentencing on April 3.
