Have your say

A hunt has been launched for a man who indecently exposed himself in the middle of Southsea.

The man was spotted at the junction of Palmerston Road and Stanley Street in Southsea, near the Knight and Lee John Lewis department store, at about 10.20pm on Saturday.

Other people were in the area at the time and police think they would have seen what happened.

The man walked towards Palmerston Road shortly after exposing himself, but did not approach anyone.

He was white, and wore a black hat, blue jeans and a grey jumper.

Police staff investigator Rebekka Harrison said: ‘This area of Southsea is usually very busy at this time on a Saturday night. Were you in the area at the time of the incident? Did you see anyone hanging around looking suspicious?

‘This tyre of incident is not common in Southsea, but as a precaution we would advise members of the public to stick to well-lit areas after dark and remain vigilant.’

Anyone with information can contact PSI Harrison at Fratton police station on 101.
