Woman charged after allegedly flashing her breasts at children in Scots playpark
A woman has been charged after allegedly flashing her breasts at children in a playpark.
The 50-year-old woman is alleged to have pulled down her top in front of a group of around 20 children in Moorpark Square in Renfrew on Sunday.
Shocked parents claim the incident was videoed by a “petrified” young girl who was playing nearby.
Last night a protest was held outside a home in Renfrew before police told the Paisley Daily Express a woman had been charged for a breach of the peace offence.
The Fighting Justice Group were in attendance at the protest last night.
One mum, who is involved with the group said: “A woman is believed to have flashed her breasts at a group of children all aged between six and twelve.
“Parents called the police as a young girl apparently recorded the woman doing this act.
“She felt intimidated by the woman and is now petrified of her following the incident she witnessed.
“Police didn’t attend until 11.30pm and obviously couldn’t speak with parents or children.”
She added: “Kids should be able to go to a playpark without worrying about things like this happening.
“So there were protests last night where we believe a woman has been charged with breach of the peace.
“Breach of the peace isn’t good enough, if this alleged incident had been a male, he would have been arrested on the spot to appear at court the next day.
“Kids need to be safeguarded and protected against incidents and people like this.”
Police confirmed that a 50-year-old female had been reported to the procurator fiscal.
A police spokesman said: "Around 6.30pm on September 5, police received a report of an indecency in Birch Way, Renfrew.
"Following enquiries, a 50-year-old woman was charged in connection with the incident.
“Police were called between 6pm and 7.30pm on Monday regarding a protest in relation to the suspected actions of a female adult.
“The protest was peaceful and no arrests were made and the crowd dispersed after 90 minutes.
“As a result of enquiries made into an alleged flashing incident, a 50-year-old female was charged with a Section 38 statutory breach of the peace.
“A report will be prepared for the Procurator Fiscal.”
