Garande Banned from Making Eye Contact with Women on UK Public Transport

Bobby Garande

Bobby Garande, 30, of Linnet Close in Thamesmead, notorious for his history of indecent exposure across south London, has struck again, this time exposing his genitals in Lewisham.

Garande, who has amassed 10 convictions for indecent exposure, has frequently committed these offenses on buses and trains. Police have described him as a “disturbing individual,” and his actions have led to multiple prison sentences and a court order specifically prohibiting him from sexually touching himself, exposing his genitals, or making persistent eye contact with women while on public transport.

In September 2020, Garande was jailed for 16 weeks after exposing himself to a woman on the number 50 bus from Croydon to Norbury, while two children sat opposite him. Then, in November 2021, he was caught on a train to Bromley South station, fondling himself while smiling at an elderly woman. The woman managed to take a photo of him, which led to his arrest when he followed her off the train at Bromley South station.


The victim in that case reported significant trauma from the incident, stating, “My sleep is affected, and when I close my eyes, I see the defendant and what he’s doing on the train.” Garande was sentenced to 27 months in prison for this offense.

While serving this sentence, Garande was prosecuted for another incident from October 2021, where he spent 15 minutes masturbating and touching his nipples while staring at a woman on a train from Blackfriars. He was subsequently arrested at Elephant and Castle and received an additional 26 weeks in prison.

Despite claims of wanting to reform, Garande reoffended on March 22 of this year by exposing himself in Lewisham. He pleaded guilty to indecent exposure and two counts of breaching a criminal behavior order that banned him from such actions on public transport.

Garande appeared at Woolwich Crown Court on May 17 from HMP Wandsworth, but his sentencing was adjourned due to the availability of barristers. Garande was Later handed a 16-week prison sentence, which he had already served on remand, and was also given a Criminal Behaviour Order which will last until further notice.

In an unusual legal measure, Garande has been specifically banned from making eye contact with women while on public transport in the UK, highlighting the severity and repeated nature of his offenses.
