A drunk who exposed himself to a female police officer in Haverhill, a Bury St Edmunds man who attacked his ex-partner and a man who stabbed a victim with a cracked bottle in Ipswich are among those jailed in Suffolk this week.
Lucas Alves, 25, was jailed for 12 months after exposing himself to a female police officer having been arrested for spitting at cars held at temporary traffic lights in Haverhill.
Alves, of Abington Place, Haverhill, had previously pleaded guilty to exposure, using threatening words or behaviour, criminal damage, possessing a knife, and using racially aggravated words or behaviour before magistrates in December, and was remanded in custody.
He was seen by drivers waiting at the lights in Chalkstone Way in Haverhill around 5pm on December 6, 2021, and appeared to be angry and distressed.
Alves was punching vehicle mirrors while shouting, attempting to enter a van, spitting at cars and being racially abusive towards a woman.
He was arrested and a search of his rucksack revealed a hammer and a large kitchen knife, and he was further arrested for possessing a bladed article in public.
After he was placed into the back of a police van, Alves proceeded to spit and urinate in the back of the van before exposing himself and masturbating in front of a female officer.
