Police keen to trace woman driver of white car who may be witness to a sexual exposure

Posted on 21st November 2016

Police in South Derbyshire are keen to trace the woman driver of a white car in Hilton who may have witnessed a sexual exposure. 

The appeal comes after an incident on Main Street, Hilton at around 11.15pm on Tuesday, November 1. Three friends were in a car together travelling along Main Street towards the junction of Derby Road when they saw two cars stopped on the other side of the road facing towards Hilton. 

Thinking there had been an accident they stopped to see if they could assist. They soon realised that there had not been a collision, however they noticed a woman in one of the cars who they describe as ‘looking petrified’. A man was seen standing by the other car. 

Having seen there was no accident the friends advised the woman to drive away, which she did. 

The man then allegedly became angry, the women drove away and as they did so saw the man expose himself. 

PC Joe Stafford from the Hilton Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “The incident is obviously very concerning,  a 39 year-old man from Ashbourne has been arrested in connection with the incident. He has been interviewed and is now on police bail whilst our investigation continues. 

“We are very keen to speak to the young woman who was driving the car that had pulled up behind the man.” 

The woman is described as white, about 18 years-of age, slim with blonde hair that was tied up and she was wearing a fur trimmed coat. The car that she was driving was described as white and ‘relatively new’.
