Stevenage flasher exposes himself to 12-year-old

POLICE are searching for a flasher who exposed himself to a young girl and is being linked with previous offences.

A 12-year-old girl was walking near an underpass between Martins Way and Grace Way in Stevenage on Thursday when she noticed a man exposing himself behind her.

The offender is described by police as a white man, 6ft tall, about 20-years-old, with blond curly hair, a large nose and small eyes. He was clean shaven and wearing a red hooded top with Adidas on the back and grey joggers.

The indecent exposure occurred at about 3.55pm and follows a similar incident at around 3pm in Canterbury Way playing fields on October 2.

Police also have an offence logged in an area off Ripon Road and St Nicholas Park at about 3.30pm on July 18.

The offender for both these incidents is similar to the one described for the latest indecent exposure.

Detective Constable Mark Dunford, investigating, said: “This area is adjacent to a busy road and an equally busy walkway and underpass and was at school finishing time. I would appeal to anyone who may have witnessed this offence or may recognise the description of the offender to contact me.
