Man arrested for exposure

Have your say

A TEENAGER has been arrested by police investigating several reports of a man exposing himself to members of the public.

Police say three incidents have been reported within the last two weeks involving a man performing indecent acts in Gosport.

The most recent incident last Wednesday took place in the Elson area and is alleged to have involved a young white male who was driving a silver vehicle.

Officers say an 18-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of indecency offences. He has been bailed until May 5 pending further inquiries.

Det Con Barbara Hamilton, from Gosport CID, said: ‘We believe the incidents are linked and wish to make the public aware. Our investigation is ongoing but in the meantime we ask that members of the public and parents are vigilant and that they reiterate to their children the dangers of approaching unknown people or vehicles.’ Call police on 101.
