Suspected Sydney Flasher Behind Bars

A father-to-be accused of flashing women jogging on Sydney's Bay Run has been labelled "unpredictable and brazen" by police, who have successfully opposed bail.

Andrew James Grant has been charged with numerous offences including five counts of stalking and two counts of assault.

The 28-year-old did not appear at Hornsby Local Court on Wednesday, when his matter was briefly mentioned.

Six female victims were approached between late January and mid-February, with police saying some incidents happened as early as 7.30am while others occurred at 10pm.

Grant is accused of stalking one victim at 3.30pm before targeting her again three hours later.

Police say Grant, who lives with his pregnant partner, assaulted one victim before exposing himself to her.

In a separate attack, he allegedly tried to kiss one of the women.

In opposing bail, police said his behaviour was escalating and "becoming increasingly unpredictable and brazen".

"Police fear he may be unable to control his future urges and may sexually assault any future victims," documents tendered to the court state.

Grant's lawyer, Joseph Nashed, indicated his client would enter a plea and possibly apply for bail when he appears at Central Local Court on Friday.

Until then he'll remain behind bars.

Detectives last week released an image of the suspected flasher and called for the public to help identify him.

"The most important thing with this offender is that he has very prominent teeth," Inspector Ned Gligorevic said at the time.

"Apparently the incisors are sharp - so you're looking at a rather unique set of front teeth."
