A Peeping Tom is the first pervert to been banned from every McDonald’s in England and Wales – after he was caught spying on two women in the restaurant’s toilets.
Sukhbir Singh, 32, sneaked into the ladies’ loos at a busy branch of the fast food giant in Birmingham city centre to ogle the victims in February this year.
JPs were told Singh hid in the cubicles at the bustling food outlet on February 19 before being disturbed by a disgusted customer who alerted staff.
Singh fled but CCTV operators tracked him from the restaurant and his image was passed to police officers.
Police arrested Singh, from Handsworth, Birmingham, ten days later after he was recognised at junction 7 of the M6 motorway.
He was also charged with another offence in the restaurant chain against another victim on February 3.
Singh denied the charges but was found guilty of secretly “observing another person of doing a private act for sexual gratification” after a trial at Birmingham Magistrates Court on July 20.
Last Friday, Singh was hit with an antisocial behaviour order (ASBO) which banned him from women’s changing rooms, toilets and all 1,200 McDonald’s branches in England and Wales.
It is the first time a Peeping Tom has been banned from the fast food chain after committing a sexual offence on the premises.
Singh was also slapped with a six-month conditional discharge and was also handed a 12-month community order.
He was also ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work and he was told to pay £50 compensation to each victim with £620 in court costs.
A photograph and list of his offences will now be distributed to McDonald’s branches and staff will receive training to recognise him should he breach the ASBO.
* The case was the second involving perverts in McDonald’s branches this year.
In April, Korean student Jihoon Choi was handed a suspended prison sentence for filming police officers using urinals at a restaurant in Small Heath, Birmingham.
The 36-year-old claimed he recorded them out of curiosity after being told a strong urine flow was a “sign of strength” and was needed to join the police.
He was also found guilty of voyeurism after a trial at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court and received a 12-week sentence, suspended for 12 months.
