Flasher strikes in Smith’s
Police launched an investigation yesterday after a flasher exposed himself to a horrified woman near a school in Smith’s yesterday,
An area resident said his wife was walking their dog when the man exposed himself.
He told The Royal Gazette: “My wife was not carrying her mobile phone at the time, but it was about 7.25am.
“A neighbour said this has been happening for about six months and he has still not been caught.
“Apparently he sees people walking and then goes forward to prepare for his flash.”
The incident happened on the parish’s St Marks Road,
A police spokesman said: “Officers promptly responded to the area and conducted a search for the suspect. However, he was not located.”
The spokesman added: “From time to time we get reports of this nature.
“We are reminding the public that if an incident like this happens, don’t put yourself in harm’s way.
“Get a detailed description of the individual and make contact with the police.”
The spokesman said: “There have been consistent reports in the South Road, Paget, and Devonshire areas. We are chasing all leads.
“Reports say he has been seen in the early hours of the morning targeting runners and walkers.
“We suggest running or walking in pairs and to stay in a well lit, well travelled environment.”
The Smith’s flasher was described as black.
Police appealed for witnesses to the latest incident or for anyone with information that could help the inquiry to contact them.
