A cross-dressing engineer who left his elderly victims terrified has been told to pay £1,500 compensation after flashing his fake breasts at two women in the street. The crossdresser would prowl the streets of East Kilbride, Lanarkshire, dressed in women’s clothing. Scott Mathieson, 52, repeatedly targeted a 73-year-old woman who would see him on her doorbell camera walking up to her front door and trying the handle, reports Glasgow Live.
Mathieson then returned weeks later and “suggestively” flashed his chest as he rubbed one breast with his hand.
He shook the fake breasts before walking away.
He then made a third visit where he was seen looking through his victim’s bedroom window which led to the police being contacted. The force was unable to trace him.
It later emerged that he had also targeted a 92-year-old woman by exposing his artificial breasts.
Police snared Mathieson weeks later after spotting him wearing a female body suit, dark wig and glasses.
Mathieson, of Bishopbriggs, Glasgow, appeared at Hamilton Sheriff Court and admitted a charge of stalking and another of threatening or abusive behaviour between June and September last year.
The court was told that he had an interest in women’s clothing and regularly attends LGBTQ clubs.
He told the court that he still identifies as a man and did not believe he was being watched by his victims.
Depute fiscal Rebecca Clark said: “The complainers are both vulnerable women and he was trying the door handle of one of their properties.
“The conduct involved him cupping, rubbing and shaping the artificial breasts with his hand. From looking at them, they are not a genuine representation given that they are large with nipples protruding. This offence does involve some sort of deviance.”
Gregor Jarrott, defending, said: “He totally accepts his conduct in respect of both charges and is aware his conduct would have caused a reasonable person fear or alarm. He first became interested in female clothing at the age of five which progressed and he now attends LGBTQ clubs where he dresses as a woman.
“There have been long standing identity issues but he does identify as a man and finds this is a way to express himself. There has been no breach of trust between parties and at no stage was there any contact between them and, as far as he is concerned, nothing was said between them.

“He didn’t know or think anyone was watching and he was deliberately doing this walking about at a time of night when he didn’t think anyone would be about and it is his position that this is a private matter and an expression of himself.”
He was placed under supervision for two years and placed on the sex offenders’ register for the same period after it was ruled there was a “significant” sexual aspect to his actions. Mathieson was ordered to pay £1000 to his first victim and £500 to the second.
Sheriff Gallacher told him: “This is a very serious offence committed over a three-month period where you exposed two elderly and vulnerable females to behaviour which caused them considerable fear and alarm and for one it has caused an adverse impact on her mental wellbeing.
“I have no hesitation in concluding this was done for your sexual gratification and that your behaviour indicates an underlying deviance from which society is entitled to be protected.”
Prosecutors accepted a not guilty plea to a third charge which alleged Mathieson had caused an 67-year-old woman fear or alarm at her home in East Kilbride and looking in her windows in July last year.
