A MAN who indecently exposed himself two teenage girls and sexually assaulted another in Brampton Bierlow is being hunted by police.
The suspect, who was described as Asian and in his late 40s to early 50s, indecently exposed himself to the 18-year-old girl while blocking her way on a footpath behind Cortonwood Drive at around 4.30pm on Sunday, June 23, police said.
“As the woman tried to walk past him, it is reported he grabbed her clothing in the groin area,” said a police spokeswoman.
“The woman then ran past him and the man walked away in the opposite direction.”
Six days later, the same man is believed to have followed two 14-year-old girls as they walked along a track between Cortonwood Drive and Wynmoor Crescent at around 2.30pm on Saturday, June 29.
“As the girls turned to face the man he is reported to have indecently exposed himself to them,” she said.
“The girls ran away from the man and he followed them for a short while, before stopping and going back the other way.”
The suspect is described as Asian, in his late 40s to early 50s, of a skinny build and around 5ft 10ins tall.
He had dark grey, medium length hair with grey sideburns.
In the second incident he was wearing a bright orange polo shirt with a small collar and three-quarter length dark denim shorts.
Police believe these incidents may be linked and have asked for anybody with information to contact them on 101 quoting incident number 603 of June 23 or 682 of June 29.
