A tubby man performed an indecent act in front of a dog walker.

Police are appealing for witnesses after the incident in the woodland at the back of Torfield School, Hastings, on August 4 at 12.40pm.

The woman was walking her dog when she passed a man on the footpath. Moments later he was lying on the ground by a bush with his t-shirt off and committing an indecent act.

He did not say anything and the woman kept on walking.

He is described as white, in his forties, about 5ft 8 tall, of medium/tubby build with dark coloured curly messy hair and a full beard of the same colour.

He was wearing a white t-shirt which had black writing on it that was tied into the style of a crop top. He was also wearing blue jeans.

PC Lee Williams said: "The lady was understandably alarmed by the actions of this man. We would advise anyone who sees someone committing an indecent act or indecently exposing themselves to call 999 immediately.

"This footpath runs alongside a children's play park so there is a risk he could have been seen by young children. We are keen to identify the man and stop him from committing further indecent acts. If you have information email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call the non emergency number 101 quoting serial 1049 of 4/08."

An incident act?

As well as spellcheckers, perhaps proofreaders would be a valuable addition to the 'Argus' team. Not to mention reporters...

So this tubby beardy man was pleasuring himself on the grass just minutes after this woman walked past with her dog. We aren't given any information about the woman - but if we were told she was a 21 year old busty blonde it might at least go some ways towards explaining the man's actions - although it wouldn't make it right of course.

Interesting story! Here's how it COULD have been reported:

W*NK*R STARTLES WALKER!

A woman out walking her dog was startled to see a man masturbating in public.

The incident happened near a children's play park in the woodland at the back of Torfield School, Hastings, on August 4 at 12.40pm.

The man, in his 40s, was described being around 5'8" in height, of tubby build with dark, messy, curly hair, with a full beard of the same colour.
He was wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt with black writing, tied into the style of a crop top.

Police are appealing for witnesses. Anyone with information should contact........

Sorry to say but when you get to a certain stage of rub a dub you just cant stop.
I must also mention that the woman took a good deal of time examining the mans, build, clothing, age, haircut yet, we have no description of his Tallywaker.
