Police appeal for information following indecent exposures in Derby

Posted on 22nd August 2013

Officers are investigating two indecent exposures which they believe may be linked.

The first incident happened at 4.50pm on Saturday, August 10 around the entrance of Chaddesden Park near Maine Drive when a 30-year-old woman had taken her dog for a walk on the park.

The woman walked past a young male sitting on a wood block seat in the wooded area as she headed back home towards Maine Drive. As she walked further along the path through the wood she turned around to call her dog and saw the young male standing about four meters away with his trousers lowered, exposing himself and holding his genitals.

She described him as being white with a tanned complexion, between 16 and 19 years of age, about 5 feet 7ins tall, with dark brown wavy styled hair. He wore a Derby County football shirt with Joma on the front and grey jogging bottoms.

The second offence happened in the same area at 7.25pm on Thursday, August 15 when a 40-year-old woman was returning home through the park via the Maine Drive entrance.

Around 100 meters from the wooded area, her phone rang and she stopped to check it, as she did she noticed a young man walk past her. She walked through the wood and out onto Maine Drive almost opposite Tennessee Road, where she crossed the first side of the road to the grass verge in the middle.

At this point she heard someone shout and turned around to see a young man standing in the opening where she had exited the wooded area. He had his bottoms pulled down fully exposing himself and holding his genitals.

She described the male as being white, about 5 feet 7 - 8ins tall, of medium build and between 16 and 20 years of age. He had dark hair which was messy but styled in a modern way and was wearing a white short sleeve t-shirt possibly a football shirt with dark bottoms.

Anyone who recognizes the description or witnessed the above incidents should contact the police on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 quoting crime reference 33561/13.
