Perverts aren't a flash in the pan

A MAN exposed himself in a Batley park in the second such incident to be reported in the area in three days last week.

The suspect in the Batley case, an Asian man in his mid-20s, struck in Jessop Park around 11.50am last Sunday.

Three days earlier a man walked into offices in Cleckheaton and shocked staff by stripping off in a bizarre incident.

The victim in the Batley case was walking along a path when the suspect got up from a park bench.

He is described as 5ft 3in to 5ft 6in tall, of medium build and was wearing a cream cricket-style top and dark Adidas jogging bottoms.

The man had luminous yellow/green trainers, a blue peaked cap with a white motif on the side and was carrying an orange and black rucksack.

In the earlier alleged offence an Asian man in his late 40s to early 50s briefly talked with a worker.

He then removed his clothes, including a blue Lonsdale T-shirt and blue jogging bottoms, before fleeing to a vehicle.

The suspect is about 6ft tall and had shaved, short brown hair which was thinning in the middle.

PC Lucy Ramsden, of the Batley and Spen NPT, said: “These incidents have understandably caused some distress to those involved.”

Anyone with information can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
