PCSO accused of masturbating at the wheel

A police community support officer from Holbeach allegedly masturbated as he drove in St Albans where he was stationed, “fixated” at the time on a teenage girl who was walking towards him.

Kelvin Mackenzie (49) was on his way home to Holbeach when a shocked St Albans cyclist saw through an open passenger window what the motorist was doing as drove slowly along Faircross Way, St Albans, a Crown Court jury was told

Mackenzie, of Cowfield Gould, Holbeach, has pleaded not guilty to committing an act which outrages public decency on July 30, 2014.


Prosecutor Alex Rooke, opening the trial, said cyclist Adam Barnes saw a middle-aged man masturbating behind the wheel of a red Renault Megane about 4.50pm.

“There was a young girl, about 16, in the vicinity. Mr Barnes says this man appeared to be fixed on the girl walking along,” said Mr Rooke.

It was discovered after the alleged incident was reported to police that the registration number given for the vehicle belonged to PCSO Mackenzie. In fact, the vehicle was in St Alban’s police station car park when the officer traced it through the database, jurors were told.

Mr Barnes, who grew up in Faircross Way and was visiting his father’s house to go on a bike ride together, told the court he was “a bit shocked” by what he witnessed and added “it took me aback”.

He said he noticed the car because it was driving slowly as he sat on his cycle on the drive waiting for his father. The Megane was on his side of the road.

The prosecutor told the jury of eight men and four women they would have to decide whether the motorist was Mackenzie, and whether “masturbating in public outrages public decency”.

He added that, legally, two people have to be “capable of seeing it” to make it an offence though they do not necessarily have to see the act, merely be capable of seeing it.

The trial continues.


How has this reached court when it appears that there is only one witness?

Guilty on the testimony of one person and no other apparent evidence?

And the jury took only one hour. Unless there's something missing in the media report then it seems an unsound conviction to me. Having said that, the defence of the VRM being wrong or cloned and that he wasn't on that road, despite admitting his journey takes him nearby doesn't seem very robust.
I have seen the truth and it makes no sense.

That's what I thought.

Surely this is just a case of one person's word against anothers?
