A MAN has appeared in court charged with exposing himself to a 16-year-old girl on a train. Mark Ferguson, 48, allegedly flashed the teenager on a train at West Croydon station on October 22. Ferguson, of Edmeston Road, Hackney, appeared at Croydon Magistrates' Court today (Friday) charged with indecent exposure and breaching a sexual offences prevention order made in August 2008. The district judge was told that Ferguson deliberately 'targeted' the teenager, asking her where the Victoria-bound train was heading to before allegedly exposing himself. He spoke only to confirm his name and that he had travelled to court in a taxi. His bail conditions bar him from taking public transport. Ferguson, originally from the US, did not enter a plea. He was released on conditional bail ahead of a hearing at Croydon Crown Court on December 6. His bail conditions were that he must reside at his home address; not travel on public transport including bus, train or tram; and report to Stoke Newington police station five days a week.
