    Redruth is in Cornwall and this man is clearly Cornish (Camborne is also in Cornwall).

    Readers unfamiliar with the geography of Britain may inappropriately be led to believe that this sort of thing could possibly be allowed to happen in Devon.

Pervert caught pleasuring himself in slurry for third time

First published in Devon

A man found naked in a field amongst cow dung and mud had been sexually pleasuring himself, a court has heard.

It was the same farm he had returned to over a period of seven years.

He was discovered on Saturday by a child of the family on land at Woodbury House Farm, Tolgus Mount, Redruth.

When police officers arrived soon after, they found him covered in a large amount of slurry and mud, in a quagmire, surrounded by tissues.

This is the third time that he has appeared in court for this kind of behaviour.

David Truscott, aged 41, of Pengegon Parc, Camborne, was sent to Truro Crown Court for sentence by Truro magistrates after he pleaded guilty to breaching a restraining order and to causing harassment to Clive Roth, of the family living on the farm.

Jill Wilson, prosecuting, said the restraining order had been made in 2009 prohibiting Truscott from entering the farm for any reason.

“There is a history of his visiting this particular farm seeking sexual gratification while immersed in cow dung and mud,” she said. “This is the only place he seeks to gratify himself in this particular manner. It goes back seven years.”

The Roth family had suffered because of his behaviour, she went on, as it had affected their quality of life and their children who had been part of what was going on.

“The family have to regularly check their livestock, outbuildings and equipment, as he has masturbated in a muck spreader and set fire to outbuildings, killing livestock in frustration when they cleaned out their farm equipment in an attempt to stop him from this lewd and obscene habit.”

On Saturday, a son of the family had become aware that a man had been seen climbing over a gate to the property, and since the family were expecting this to be Truscott they went out. The child came across him naked in a field amongst cow dung and mud.

His previous convictions included arson, burglary and harassment, and he had a caution for possession of extreme pornographic images in relation to animals. He had breached the restraining order before, quite soon after it was made, and for which he was sent to prison.

The magistrates sent Truscott to the crown court on March 23, saying the case was unsuitable for summary hearing.

He was remanded in custody.
