Police step up patrols to catch flasher as man indecently exposes himself to girls in Lowestoft
POLICE are seeking witnesses after a man indecently exposed himself to a 12-year-old girl in an alleyway at Dell Road, Lowestoft.
Officers have stepped up patrols in the area as they link three recent exposure incidents in the town.
The latest incident happened around 8.30am last Wednesday (January 25) as the 12-year-old girl was walking to school. She saw the man – described as white, around 5ft 8ins tall, of medium build, aged in his late teens to 20s, with short brown spiky hair with a pierced lower lip and stubble on his chin, wearing dark jogging bottoms and a dark coloured hooded top with a blue top underneath and white trainers – in the alleyway that leads to Victoria Road.
She passed him and continued down the alley but then realised he was following her. She looked back and saw he was a short distance behind her and he then pulled down his jogging bottoms exposing himself.
The girl ran away and the incident was later reported to police.
'Officers believe this may be linked to another incident that occurred in Kirkley Run on the morning of Friday, January 20 where a 13-year-old girl was approached by a man and to another exposure incident, which happened on Saturday, December 17,' a police spokesman said.
'Here two 13-year-old girls reported a man, aged in his 20s to 30s, with brown curly hair and a big nose, wearing a blue and white coat with a hood and dark blue baggy jeans, had exposed himself to them around noon in Blackheath Woods.'
