A man has been given an indefinite hospital order and a Sexual Harm Prevention Order after appearing at Liverpool Crown Court on Friday, 30 August.
On the morning of Friday, 18 January 2019, 21-year-old Kyle Morgan came to the attention of an off-duty police officer in Storeton Woods, Bebington after he was seen acting suspiciously.
Patrols were called, and following a search, Morgan was arrested after being found in possession of several items including a knife, handcuffs and limb restraints.
Morgan subsequently pleaded guilty to committing an offence with the intent of committing a sexual offence and being in possession of a knife.
Following his appearance at Liverpool Crow court, he will remain at a secure hospital indefinitely.
Detective Chief Inspector Robbie Moss said:
“Following the instinctive thinking of the off-duty officer and an extensive investigation, Morgan will now no longer pose a potential risk to the public and will remain in hospital where he will receive the correct treatment.
“This was a shocking incident, however, I would like to reassure the public that following enquiries we do not believe Morgan had previously committed any other crimes of a similar nature and no victims were identified.
“He has now been dealt with by the police and courts in the correct way and will get the help he needs through a hospital order.
“The Sexual Harm Prevention Order also carries a number of conditions meaning he must not be found in possession of specific items in a public place and must not possesses any digital device”.
