THIS e-fit has been released by police after a man flashed two young girls in a park.

Hampshire police said the man, riding a red bike, exposed himself to the two children aged eight and nine in Stamshaw Park.

The first incident happened on the weekend of March 7 to 8 in the afternoon, and the second on March 19 at about 4.30pm.

Police released details of the incident today.

The man said the suspect spoke to the children while exposing himself but there was no contact.

The children ran home and were left shocked after both incidents.

A spokesman said the man is white, in his early 50s, skinny and around 5ft 10in tall.

He has very short light grey hair and is bald on top, with light green or blue eyes and has wrinkles and a thin scar on his lower right cheek.

‘At the time of the latest incident he was wearing navy blue tracksuit bottoms with two stripes and a very dark thin jacket,’ the police spokesman added.

‘Police are now appealing for anyone who witnessed either incident or saw anything suspicious in the park at the time to contact them.’

Anyone with information should call Detective Sergeant David West at the Eastern Investigation Unit based at Fratton Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
