Flasher sought by police

POLICE are hunting a flasher who was spotted exposing himself by two boys in Liversedge.

The boys were walking through the ginnel off First Avenue in Windy Bank when they saw the man.

A spokesman from the Spen Neighbourhood Police Team said the incident happened around 6pm on Friday July 27.

He said: “The nine and 10-year old boys were walking through the ginnel when they saw a man who was indecently exposed. The man was exposed before the boys saw him, and he did no speak to the boys or approach them.

“The boys went home and reported the incident to their parents, who in turn informed the police.”

The man police are looking for was in his 40s with a goatee beard and greying brown hair. He was wearing a blue baseball cap, blue t-shirt and blue shorts.

Any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact PC Nick O’Melia at the Spen NPT on 01924 206 357 or via 101.
