AN INVESTIGATION has been launched after three indecent exposures in Leigh Park.

The victims, a 12-year-old girl and a 14-year-old girl, were approached separately as they walked alone by a man on a bike who exposed himself to them.

Both girls ran from the man following the incident, which happened in the area of Stockheath Lane and Barncroft Way last Wednesday between 3.20pm and 4.15pm.

The third incident occurred last Friday at around 3.20pm.

The victim, a 12-year-old girl, was walking home alone along an alleyway off Ellisfield Road when she was approached by a man on a bike who exposed himself.

PC Emily Dummer, from Waterlooville police station, said: ‘The victims have all been walking home from school alone and I would like to ask parents to remind their children to walk home with a friend or if walking alone stick to busy, well-lit areas.’

The suspect is described as white, aged 30 to 40, thin, with short black or brown hair, large ears, a pointy nose and a brown moustache.

A 33-year-old man from Havant has been arrested on suspicion of exposure, driving while disqualified and outraging public decency.

He has been bailed until November 19 pending further inquiries.
