A drunk man, Paul Bennett was caught trying to have sex with a postbox in the middle of a shopping arcade in England
The 45-year-old man was seen tottering towards the postbox with his trousers down and making 'sexual advances towards it’ at Scholes Precinct in Wigan.
According to an eye witness, he then rubbed himself against the postbox while holding his hands in the air and shouting “wow”.
After completing the act he pulled his trousers up and started swinging on a lamppost.
The alarmed eye-witness called police, who found him half naked when they arrived.
After his arrest, Bennett was arraigned before the Wigan and Leigh Magistrate Court on two count charge of indecent exposure and using threatening and abusive words with abusive behaviour.
Bennett, of Holborn Avenue, Wigan, pleaded guilty to the charges.
The prosecutor Katie Beattie, said Bennett was heard shouting and swearing outside her window and seen arguing with a woman.
When the women left, Bennett was said to have sat down on a bench in the precinct and started to shout, before sitting up and exposing himself by pulling his trousers down.
He then began performing a sex act and walked over to the postbox and "started to make sexual advances towards it".
"The victim rang the police. She was disgusted by his behaviour," Beattie said of the eye witness.
Bennett was handed a 12-month community order with an alcohol treatment and supervision requirement.
He was also ordered to pay £50 compensation to the victim, £150 court costs and a £60 victim surcharge and told to sign the Sex Offenders' Register.
