POLICE are hunting a man who has exposed himself to girls and elderly women.

Officers are linking seven reports of a man committing the offence in front of women in the Leigh Park area.

The youngest victim was a 10-year-old girl, while the oldest was a 71-year-old woman.

The offences have mostly taken place around a footpath running through Great Copse woods – and all occurred between 4pm and 7pm.

The offences have happened over the past five weeks.

Inspector Mick Cotterill, from Havant police, said: ‘The close proximity of these offences and the similarities in the description of the offender lead us to believe these incidents are linked.

‘I understand that offences like this cause the public to worry, but I’d like to reassure people that we are robustly investigating them.

‘I would also like to stress that while we are taking these offences very seriously and don’t in any way underestimate the distress caused to victims, this man has made no attempt to physically assault or grab any of the women or girls.’

Police have increased patrols and been in contact with local schools.

‘Some victims have told police the man has an eyebrow piercing. At the time of the offences the man has been wearing casual clothes, typically jeans or tracksuit bottoms, a T-shirt or hooded top and trainers.

He is aged 18 to 25, of athletic build, about 5ft 8in tall and has blonde spiky hair.

Inspector Cotterill added: ‘We need to hear from anyone who recognises this description,’
