A man was arrested on a charge of outraging public decency after secretly recording women who were breastfeeding their children in public, police in the United Kingdom said.
Now, 38-year-old Saleem Patel of Hull, was sentenced to perform 200 hours of community service after pleading guilty to outraging public decency.
According to the police investigation, Patel recorded women using toilets and breastfeeding their children at train stations in London.
Patel was caught by two police officers who saw him recording a mother breastfeeding her child. When asked why he was recording the woman, Patel said that he liked it.
