Image appeal following indecent exposure in Bournemouth

Alert message sent 13/01/2021 15:02:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers investigating an incident where a man indecently exposed himself in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

 At around 2.10pm on Friday 8 January 2021 a local man aged in his 20s entered the public toilets on Southbourne Overcliff Drive shortly after another man. It is reported that the man who entered first proceeded to stand in the doorway and perform a lewd act in front of the other man.
 The victim challenged the man and he left the toilets and walked off along the beach in the direction of Hengistbury Head.

 Police Constable Ben Carter, of Bournemouth police, said: “This incident left the victim feeling scared and in fear of what may have happened next had he not challenged the man.
“As part of my enquiries I have obtained an image of the man. While I appreciate you cannot see his face in the picture, I am hoping someone may recognise him from the clothing he is wearing.

“I am also keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have witnessed what happened.”
