CCTV appeal following indecent exposure incident in Wimborne

Alert message sent 15/01/2021 12:09:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers investigating an indecent exposure incident in Wimborne are issuing an image of a man they would like to speak to.

 At around 3.15pm on Saturday 12 December 2020 the victim – a 16-year-old girl – was walking along West Street when a man approached her to ask for directions. The victim did not know the answer, so she got her phone out to find out.

 As she was looking for the directions on her phone, it is reported that the man pulled his jogging bottoms down and indecently exposed himself to the victim.

 Police Constable Ryan Higgins, of East Dorset police, said: “This was an extremely frightening incident for the victim and I am carrying out a number of enquiries to identify the offender.

“I have obtained a CCTV image of a man I would like to speak to and would ask anyone who recognises him to please get in touch.”
