There have been two incidents in Warboys in the last fortnight, and police are very anxious to identify the offender and apprehend him before he commits any more offences.

In the first incident on Friday July 8, a male described as about 25 years of age, slim, with a stubbly beard, wearing red jogging bottoms and glasses, exposed himself in front of a couple walking their dog near Statfold Green.

When challenged, he gave his name as ‘Alfred’, then walked off and sat down on a bench.

The second offence occurred at around 10.15pm on Friday July 15 in the vicinity of Garner Avenue. A male described as in his late 20s, wearing a hat and glasses, indecently exposed himself to a group of adults and children walking home.

When challenged, he ran off down an alleyway. In both incidents, the offender behaved erratically, hitting himself and falling on the ground before apologising for his actions.

Police would like to hear from anyone with any information regarding these incidents. Call 101.
