Preacher and former alderman accused of sexual assault of an underage male child

The Camden Police Department is seeking information on the whereabouts of Phillip Michael Gordon, a preacher and former alderman for the City of Camden, wanted for 1st degree sexual assault.

Gordon is described as a black male, 5’11” tall weighing 205 lbs with black hair and brown eyes,

Please call 836-5755 if you have any information.

According to a report from the Camden Police Department, on March 14 2021 an officer was dispatched to the lobby of the Camden Police Department to make contact with a juvenile male who was accompanied by his mother and grandmother.

The juvenile stated that he was picked up from his house around 10:45 p.m.or 11:00 p.m. by Gordon. The juvenile stated that Gordon had been mentoring him since last October when they met at the juvenile’s mother’s wedding. He stated that Gordon was helping him cope with anger problems.

According to the report, Gordon brought the juvenile back to Gordon’s residence, where the juvenile got tired and went to sleep on the couch. Due to couch being cluttered, Gordon told the juvenile to go to sleep in his bed. The juvenile said he awoke later to Gordon engaging in oral sex with him and that there was semen on the juvenile’s shirt.

The juvenile stated he then hit Gordon in the head causing Gordon to leave and then go to a bathroom. The juvenile called his grandfather stating that “he touched me” and he needed to leave Gordon’s house. The juvenile told Gordon that he needed to go home because he was in trouble. According to the juvenile, Gordon told him “don’t tell anyone.”

The juvenile’s shirt was handed over to CPD as evidence and a sexual assault kit was obtained. At some point in time, cheek swabs were conducted on Gordon, as well as hair samples taken.

On June 15, Judge Hamilton Singleton issued a warrant for Gordon’s arrest.

Man ‘Caught Masturbating Near Woman Doing Squats’ Banned From Gym For Life

masturbation-gym-fbA man from South Africa has been banned from a gym for life after he was allegedly caught masturbating near a woman who was doing squats.

 

Footage shows the man – who has not been named – seated on an exercise mat with a towel over his lap, mere yards away from other gym goers.

He had placed one hand inside his pants, and could be seen moving it around vigorously while looking at a phone in his other hand. He was seated closely to a woman who was using a kettlebell to practice squats.

The footage was taken by a gym goer at a branch of Virgin Active in the university town of Stellenbosch, in South Africa’s Western Cape. It has since been widely shared on social media, causing repulsion and anger.

The shocking footage was shared on social media with the caption: ‘I want this man’s face to go viral. This was at the Virgin Active in Stellenbosch @virginactiveSA. Absolutely abysmal behaviour’.

The Virgin Active Twitter account responded to this with the following tweet, ‘Hi! We agree and action has been taken’.

Virgin Active spokesperson Carla White has since made the following statement to News 24:

Virgin Active is aware of a video circulating on social media and WhatsApp.

Our clubs are shared spaces and we will absolutely not tolerate depraved behaviour. We commenced our investigation as soon as we received the video.

We have identified the member in question and have terminated his membership with immediate effect.

It is unclear at this point whether or not this man will face criminal consequences for his alleged actions.

People making fun of that Stellenbosch Gym Video is sick. What that guy did to that woman is sexual harassment.

His ‘disturbing’ and ‘disrespectful’ behaviour has been widely condemned on social media, with people warning how this sort of thing really shouldn’t be treated lightly.

One person tweeted:

That man who decided that masturbating in a gym in Virgin Active was a sexual predator. And the reactions to the video show a massive gap in the way we treat men who commit the crimes and the women who experience them.

Another said:

People making fun of that Stellenbosch Gym Video is sick. What that guy did to that woman is sexual harassment.

No one has the right to make others feel uncomfortable at the gym, which should provide a safe and supportive environment for everyone.

Well done to Virgin Active for making it clear that this sort of behaviour should never be tolerated.
