Police appeal to public after a man exposes himself at young girls

A man exposed himself and gesticulated towards two young girls in Greater Manchester.
It happened at about 1.15pm on Friday 8 August 2014 as the two girls, aged 12 and 13-years-old, were walking over Quaker Bridge in Monton, Eccles.

Police have now released an evofit of the suspected offender and are appealing to anyone who recognises him to come forward.

The two young girls were walking over the bridge when the offender, who was walking the other way over the bridge, blocked their path.

He then exposed his penis and gesticulated to the two girls, causing them to run off.

The girls described the offender as being white, about 6ft tall, of a slim build and in his 30s. He had dirty blonde hair and was wearing black trousers and a black fleece with a green logo. He was also said to have a ‘wonky’ eye.

Police Constable Gaynor Gough said: “All reports of indecent exposure are taken extremely seriously by Greater Manchester Police because of the offence and distress they cause people.

“What makes this even more appalling is that this man deliberately exposed himself to two very young girls who were understandably shocked and upset to be confronted by this individual.

“Such behavior is not just criminal but immoral and we need to find this man before he exposes himself again.

“I would urge people to look very carefully at the image we have issued. The girls have worked with our forensic imaging specialists to produce a good likeness of the offender so I would ask people to look at the picture and if you recognise this man or you see him hanging around then call police immediately.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 5976 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
