Police Appeal witness

Bedfordshire Police have launched an appeal for information after a man indecently exposed himself to a woman in the Brickhill area of Bedford.

At around 10.15am on Tuesday 5 October, a woman was approached by a man while walking on Hawk Drive in Brickhill.

He then indecently exposed himself and walked off in the direction of Brickhill.

Police have described the suspect as a black man approximately 5’8” – 5’10”, of medium build, with medium length black Afro hair. He’s believed to be around 25 years old.

At the time he was wearing a grey hooded jacket and black trousers.

PC Adam Lacey, from Bedfordshire Police, said: “This was a really distressing incident for the victim and we’re keen to speak with anyone who may have seen someone who matches the description of the offender in the Brickhill area at the time.

“This behaviour is absolutely unacceptable, and I’d urge anyone who could help with our enquiries to get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Lacey through Bedfordshire Police’s online reporting centre or by calling 101 and quoting reference number 40/52982/21.

Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
