“We are looking after our children,” one of the mothers told local paper Gefle Dagblad.
The mothers organized a petition against the nude balcony masturbator and gathered 400 signatures demanding the man should be forced to move out of his rented apartment.
Mats Johansson at Sandvikenhus, the alleged flasher’s landlord, told the paper that they are working to solve the situation in a way that will be in the interest of all parties.
“To evict someone isn’t always the best solution. Wherever they live they could go and flash children at some playground,” he told GD.
However, Johansson also said that it would be hard for the landlord to keep the man on as a tenant if he flashes people from his balcony.
The mothers are scared that the man will prove to be a threat to the local children. But according to Johansson, he has spoken to the man’s psychiatric support staff and they are adamant that he doesn’t have any such tendencies.
However, the local mothers are not happy with these assurances.
“Flashers need to get care and we need to protect our children,” one said to the paper.
