Walsall Police Appeal For Information Following Two Indecent Exposures
30 June 2011
Walsall police are investigating two separate reports of indecent exposure this week in Pelsall and Brownhills.
Officers are investigating both incidents and are asking for any other possible victims to come forward with information.
The first incident took place on Monday 27 June at 1.40pm, on grassland by Ryders Hayes Pool, off Ryders Hayes Lane in Pelsall.
Two women were approached by a man who indecently exposed himself, before the women ran off.
He is described as a white man aged late 50s-early 60s, totally naked but very tanned and with a full head of white hair. He was around 5’10 with what was described as a beer belly.
The second incident occurred around 10.30pm last night (Wednesday 29 June) on Chester Road North, Brownhills.
Three 14 year old girls were walking between the Rising Sun Pub Island and the Hussey Arms Pub on the A5, near to an area described as the Black Path.
they were approached by a white man, described as in his 30s with dark hair and wearing a top with writing on it. He indecently exposed himself to the three girls and they ran off.
A/Police Sergeant James Drake from Aldridge Police Station said: “Although we are not linking the two incidents, we are investigating both and have increased reassurance patrols in the area. We are appealing for anyone who may recognised the descriptions of these men or anyone who may have seen them to come forward. We believe there may be other victims in the areas who for whatever reason, may not have reported any sightings. We would urge those people to come forward so we can catch the two men responsible for these distressing incidents.”
