A Pembroke Dock man with a sexual interest in under aged girls has been jailed today (Friday).

Gareth Flynn, aged 36, was also made the subject of a sexual offences prevention order banning him from approaching girls aged under 16 for the next five years.

Flynn, of Laws Street, admitted harassing two 14 year old girls.

Catherine Richards, prosecuting, told Swansea crown court how Flynn approached the girls in Memorial Park, Pembroke Dock, on August 26 last year.

He told them he was aged only 25 and made "inappropriate and suggestive comments," even telling the girls about the sexual activities of his two dogs.

They walked away but Flynn approached them again, and later for a third time, again making "sexual innuendos."

Miss Richards said that at the time Flynn had been on bail accused of harassing a 15 year old boy. Flynn had asked him to find out the name of a teenage girl, but later turned on him and threatened to stab him "and put him in a canal."

Flynn was also being investigated over a complaint that he had pulled up next to two young girls and offered them a lift.

And in 2003 he had been convicted of having sexual intercourse with a 14 year old girl.

Ieuan Rees, representing Flynn, said his behaviour in Memorial Park had been more "ladish" than threatening.

Flynn was jailed for 16 months, and an additional six month for breaking into the Ship and Anchor pub in High Street, Fishguard, which he admitted.

Miss Richards said Flynn was seen climbing out of a window. Police arrived within six minutes and found he had removed more than £1,000 worth of items, including brass door handles.

Judge Keith Thomas said Flynn had a background of sexual interest in young girls.

He had been made the subject of community orders in the past but had not taken advantage of the help he had been offered.
