A 45-year-old man has been arrested after an alcohol-fuelled sexual escapade in the middle a busy Manchester road.
Jonathon Pisani has been jailed for 11 weeks in the UK after he was caught having sex with a woman on the pavement as shoppers and passersby recoiled in confusion and horror, the Manchester Evening News reported.
Pisani was seen lying on the pavement floor with 40-year-old Kate Jackson after they shared a bottle of cider together.
The pair, who didn’t know each other, struck up a conversation after Jackson’s bus was delayed, and he offered her some cider.
Police said they received a call that a woman might be getting raped in Market Street in Stalybridge. However, after watching CCTV footage of the incident, investigators saw the pair “passionately kissing” outside a nightclub called Bar Liquid.
Shortly after the pair were seen kissing, they began to cuddle on the pavement. Soon afterwards, Jackson was seen pulling Pisani on top of her, before they began having sex in front of everyone.
They were arrested shortly afterwards. The incident happened on 10th August.
Pisani, who lives in Oldham, was sentenced to 11 weeks imprisonment for outraging public decency. Jackson was fined and given a 12 month community order.
In the sentencing, the magistrate called the offence “appalling”, and took into account Pisani’s previous convictions.
Jackson’s lawyers said that she was “devastated to be in this position” and found it highly embarrassing, saying she was taking medication for bipolar disorder and that the alcohol use “is likely to have led to this situation happening”.
