A man who exposed himself to two young schoolgirls in a Norfolk village is a “danger to the public”, the mother of one of the girls has claimed.

A high school student and her friend were jogging in Great Ellingham, near Attleborough, when they were approached by a man wearing just a pink-coloured hoody and see-through tights.

The mother said the man drove slowly past them in a white van in Chequers Lane, looking at them intensely, before appearing to loop around and pass them again.

The van then pulled into a lay-by near to Glebe Meadow, after which the man approached the girls.

The man did not follow them and the girls reported the incident at around 4.30pm on Monday, April 16 to the mother, who called the police on 101.

“This man sounds like a danger to the public and people need to be aware and vigilant,” the mother said.

“Obviously I was quite concerned because you don’t know what he was intending to do.

“He might have tried to find someone else.

“We are all quite shaken. You don’t expect it in a small place like this.”

The suspect is described as being white, aged in his early 20s, between 5ft 8in and 6ft tall and of a slim build.

He also had brown hair, which was bleached blonde on the top.

Chequers Lane, where the man first approached the girls is located nearby Great Ellingham Primary School, which contains six classes of children aged four to 11.

Great Ellingham Pre-School is further away to the west of where the incident took place.

Anyone with information should contact PC Samuel Hunt at Thetford Police Station on 101 or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
