Officers investigate indecent exposure in Belper
Main article content
Officers investigating an indecent exposure incident in Belper are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.
At around 4pm on Tuesday 14 July an 11 year old girl was walking along Edensor Drive near to the footpath leading to Norbury Way when she noticed a car parked up, with a man sat in the drivers seat.
He spoke to her as she walked past and asked for directions. As she replied she noticed the man was exposing himself, and he made an inappropriate comment to her.
The girl walked a short distance home immediately and told her parents, who alerted us to the incident.
The car is believed to be a white four door vehicle, possibly a BMW, and the man is described as being white but with tanned skin and aged between 20 and 40 years. He had black hair and stubble, and was wearing black trousers and a waterproof coat.
Sgt. Jo-Anne Brooks, of the local Safer Neighbourhood policing team, said: “This was understandably a distressing incident for girl and an investigation is underway to identify the man involved.
“Reassurance patrols have been stepped up in the area and we would appeal to anyone in that area who may have noticed the car parked up around that time, or anything suspicious, to contact us.
“We would also like to hear from anyone who may have any CCTV in the area, or dashcam footage, which could help with our inquiries.”
