A sex pest drove around near schools looking for victims before stopping to expose himself to young pupils.
Waqas Mahmood, 28, called girls aged 13 over to his car to “ask for directions” but as they approached they could see he was carrying out a sex act.
Mahmood was found guilty by a jury but had his case put off yesterday because the court forgot to order an Urdu interpreter.
The jury heard how Mahmood had parked close to a secondary school in Perth and was found behaving in a similar way in a neighbouring street five days later.
They found him guilty of two sexual offences and he was placed on the Sex Offenders Register as well as having sentenced deferred to a later date.
Mahmood, 28, Muirend Road, Perth, was found guilty of carrying out a sex act in front of two 13-year-old girls in Viewlands Road, Perth, on March 22 last year.
The jury also found him guilty of exposing himself to a 15-year-old girl in Viewlands Road West on March 27.
Both offences took place close to Perth Academy and Perth High School.
The court heard how Mahmood was “meandering” around the neighbourhood in his black BMW before pulling in and calling over a pair of young girls to his car.
Depute fiscal Eilidh Robertson told the court: “He’s a man just unable to control himself in the presence of teenage girls.
“He drives round the streets of Perth for young girls to expose himself to for his own sexual gratification.”
The jury of eight women and seven men took just 30 minutes to unanimously convict the accused.
The two 13-year-old girls were called over by Mahmood and asked for directions, but it was immediately apparent to them what he was doing.
“My friend went to the window, then we realised what he was doing,” one of the girls told the jury.
“He was looking at both of us. I felt weird after I had seen that. I told my guidance teacher and she phoned the police.”
Her friend said: “He was looking at me while he was touching his private parts. I didn’t feel good – I felt uncomfortable after this happened.”
