Police are investigating after a man followed a woman down a footpath in Weston-super-Mare and exposed himself while she was walking alone at night.
Avon and Somerset Constabulary has launched a witness appeal following last night’s (Tuesday) incident in Clover Court, near the Tesco Express.
Police say there may also have been other similar indecent exposure incidents recently.
The man is reported to have followed a woman along a public footpath running adjacent to Clover Court from 7-8pm and exposed himself.
A police spokesman said: “We are speaking to residents of homes in the area and will be leafletting properties in the area appealing for information.
“Officers will also be carrying out patrols in the area to provide reassurance and receive information from members of the public.
“We would be keen to hear from people whose properties in the area have CCTV cameras which may have captured an image of the man, who is described as a white man, over 6ft tall, of slim build and in his mid-20s.
“He has dark hair with some facial hair and at the time was wearing a baggy white jacket/jumper and black jeans.
“We believe there may have been similar incidents recently and are keen to hear from anyone who has information.”
