A FORMER Drewsteignton man has appeared at Exeter Crown Court accused of stripping naked and exposing himself in the Accident and Emergency department of the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.

Perry Smith, aged 24, is also accused of having a knife in a public park in Exeter where he claimed to be whittling wood.

Smith, formerly of Lamb Park, Drewsteignton, and now of Foxholes Road, Exmouth, has denied exposure at the RD and E and having a blade in Bury Park, Exeter.

Judge Erik Salomonsen adjourned his case for a psychiatric assessment after being told that Smith, who is currently remanded in custody at Exeter Prison, but is due to be transferred to Langdon Hospital in Dawlish under the Mental Health Act.

Smith is also facing allegations before magistrates of exposure, threatening behaviour, and having a dangerous black lurcher dog called Marley which worried sheep and bit a man in a graveyard in Drewsteignton.
