Hunt for flasher
Date published: 31 July 2014
POLICE have released an image of a man they want to speak to in connection with an indecent exposure in Ashton.
At around 8pm on Tuesday, June 10, two 16-year-old girls were walking along Queen’s Road when they heard a man grunting on the opposite side of the road.
To avoid him, they turned down a ginnel leading to Waterloo Gardens but he followed them.
He whistled to get their attention and as they turned around, he indecently exposed himself.
The girls ran off and called police.
He is described as being white, in his 50s, 5ft 8in tall, of medium build, with grey medium-length scruffy hair with a bald patch.
He had red cheeks, stubble, wore washed-out blue denim jeans and a dark grey T-shirt.
Sgt Adrian Girtchen said: “From what we were told, the man was staggering and could have possibly have been drunk at the time.
“I would appeal to anyone who may have seen this man either before or after the exposure or if you were also a victim, to contact police.
“I would also ask the man in the image to come forward and help us eliminate him from our inquiries.”
Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 9350 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
