Martin Gregory Coll, a homeless man, was recently charged for allegedly having sex with a mattress.

The alleged incident occurred in the parking lot of a retirement home in Derry, UK, notes

Police officers claimed they found Coll, who is a convicted sex offender, watching X-rated movies on a portable DVD player and having simulated sex with the furniture last Saturday at 5 a.m.

Coll was charged with "indecent behavior" and “committing an act of lewd, obscene and disgusting nature and of outraging public decency by watching pornography in a public place and with having simulated sex with a mattress while naked," reports The Mirror.

Coll was reportedly given a suspended sentenced last week for stealing from some charity donation boxes at a bus depot office.

According to The Mirror, a police sergeant told a judge, "[Coll] went to the rear car park which is used by staff and by residents. Officers went to check and when they arrived they heard what they described as sex sounds emanating from behind a fence in the car park. He had a handheld DVD player with the volume turned loud."

“He was laying on a mattress naked from the waist down with his trousers and underwear down by his ankles and he was simulating sex with the mattress. A number of residents in the old peoples’ home were awake at the time but they did not want to make a statement to the police,” added the police sergeant.

A judge ruled that Coll would remain in jail in until Thursday of this week.

A former public defender of Coll told a judge earlier this year that the homeless man couldn't get shelter in a hostel because of his previous sex crimes, which are part of his 72 convictions.
