A man wanted for slapping a stranger so hard on the bottom it "left a red mark" went on to expose himself to the female police officer who tried to arrest him for assault.
Manchester Magistrates’ Court heard how Akieem Ogle-Waite slapped a complete stranger as he ran past her along Slade Lane, in Manchester, at about 8:25am on August 26.
The woman, who didn’t hear Ogle-Waite coming because she had been wearing headphones, felt “violated” when a male “ran up behind her and slapped her on the back side,” prosecutor Tess Kenyon told the court.
Ms Kenyon added that the assault “left a red mark.”
The following day, a police officer was on patrol in the Deansgate area of Manchester city saw Ogle-Waite and realised that he matched the description of the male wanted for the sexual assault.
But as she approached the suspect he shouted “excuse me,” and yanked his shorts down all the way to his ankles.
"He had no underpants on and was exposing his genitals,” explained Ms Kenyon.
"The officer said she felt sick to her stomach and was alarmed. She walked towards him and asked what he was doing and went to grab his arms but he ran.”

The police officer read a personal statement to the court, saying: “Although it caused me distress on the day I see myself as a strong woman.
“I have full access to PPE and could defend myself if he assaulted me.
“He preys on victims and takes particular interest in lone females and needs some help.”
