Appeal following indecent exposure in Nelson park

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

We are appealing for witnesses after a man indecently exposed himself at a park in Nelson.

The incident occurred at around 4pm on Monday (September 11th) at Victoria Park, on Carr Road, when the man exposed himself to two female dog walkers and an elderly couple.

They man was initially seen close to the bridge, before he made off in the direction of the river.

The incident was reported to police by one of the dog walkers and we would now like to trace the second dog walker and the couple, as they may have information which could help with our enquiries.

We would also like to hear from anyone else with information about the incidents, or who knows who the offender might be.

DS Melissa Kelly, of Blackburn Police, said: “We believe this man exposed himself to several people in what is a popular and busy local park, and we would now like to hear from anybody with information which could help with our enquiries. In particular we would like to speak to the three other people believed to have also witnessed this man indecently exposing himself on September 11th.”

The offender is described as Asian or mixed race, of very slim build, around 5ft 11ins tall, clean-shaven and aged in his mid-20s. He was wearing a grey baseball cap, dark trousers and a grey Adidas sports jacket with red stripes down the arms and the word ‘Adidas’ in black on his back.

 

Anyone with information can contact Lancashire Police on 101 quoting log number 902 of September 11th.

Alternatively the independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
