A CCTV image has been released of a man police wish to speak to after a boy was spied on while getting changed at Hitchin Swimming Centre.

Police would like to speak to the man pictured as part of a further appeal for information.

The appeal comes after the Comet published a story about a 14-year-old boy who was watched by a man while he was getting changed in the male changing room at the swimming pool in Fishponds Road.

The incident happened at around 4.15pm on Friday, August 1, as the teenage boy was getting changed in a cubicle when a man entered an adjacent cubicle and looked underneath to watch the boy.

The boy saw the man and so he moved to a different cubicle. The man again went into the cubicle next to the boy’s and tried to look underneath.

The boy realised and the man then left the changing room.

In July the Comet published an e-fit of a man who had spied on an 11-year-old boy getting undressed at the pool on June 24 after police released details of the incident, but officers are not currently linking the two incidents.
