A pervert banned from the Pentagon shopping centre in Chatham and the High Street has been arrested in Kent after he was thought to be on the run in Poland.
Serial flasher Daniel Gacioch, 23, had already admitted exposing himself in the town on January 3, January 21 and again on February 8, when he appeared before magistrates in Medway in March.
Gacioch, who was living in Luton Road, Chatham, at the time, had the cases adjourned to allow probation officers to carry out a pre-sentencing report on him.
His bail conditions banned him from going into the Pentagon Shopping Centre, in Chatham, and the High Street, apart from attending court or seeing his solicitor.
He was due back in court earlier this week for sentencing, but failed to attend.
The court heard that while he was out on bail, Gacioch returned to Poland as magistrates were told a friend had given a letter from Gacioch to probation officers, which said he had been obliged to go back.
Magistrates issued a warrant for his arrest. Afterwards, a police spokesman confirmed officers were making enquiries to try and trace him.
A spokesman today said a 23-year-old man had been arrested in Kent and was in custody.
