Have your say

A FLASHER has been exposing himself to women as they walk alone.

Police have linked four incidents of indecent exposure and said yesterday that they believe they were carried out by the same man.

The first incident was on Friday, August 1, at 1.30pm, when a woman in her 40s was walking in Braunston Close, Paulsgrove, Portsmouth.

The second happened on Monday, September 15, at 10pm while a woman in her 40s was walking her dog along Colesbourne Road in Paulsgrove, near to Nailsworth Road.

The third happened on Friday, September 19 at 4pm, while a woman in her 50s was walking along Beverstone Road, Paulsgrove.

The fourth incident happened on Sunday, September 21, at 3pm, while a woman in her 50s was walking her dog along Portsdown Hill, near to Carmarthen Avenue, Cosham.

All four women described the flasher as having wavy, mousy brown hair and being in his late teens to early 20s.

In all four cases, the offender did not speak or approach the women.

A police spokesman said: ‘Anyone with information is asked to contact the Safer Neighbourhoods team at Cosham police station on 101.’
