Witness appeal following alleged indecent exposure in Bournemouth

Alert message sent 18/11/2021 10:18:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert


Officers investigating an incident where it is alleged that a man indecently exposed himself in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.
It was reported that at around 2pm on Tuesday 16 November 2021 a woman was standing with a small child in her arm on the pavement on Old Christchurch Road when a man standing near to her exposed himself performing a lewd act. The man was then challenged by a member of the public.
Following enquiries, a 24-year-old man form Bournemouth has been arrested on suspicion of outraging public decency and is helping officers with their enquiries.
Chief Inspector Danny Thompson, of Dorset Police, said: “We continue to carry out a number of enquiries.
“At that time of the day the area would have been busy and I am appealing to anyone who witnessed what happened to please contact Dorset Police.
“I would also like to appeal to anyone who has taken a photo or video footage in relation to the incident to please get in touch with us to enable officers to gather all available evidence, rather than sharing it on social media.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk/do-it-online, via email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting incident number 17:589. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at Crimestoppers-uk.org or call Freephone 0800 555 111.
