9:58am Wednesday 26th September 2012 in News
A mountain bike rider is believed to be indecently exposing himself to women as he rides through Tilgate Forest.
Police have received two reports from women who have seen a man flashing in the Crawley park.
The most recent happened at 12.40pm on 11 September when a woman reported seeing a man exposing himself in the woods next to Tilgate Forest Business Park.
Another women reported a similar offence in the forest on March 28 this year, and on 5 September she contacted police again to say she also saw him cycling towards the golf course there.
The man is described as white, aged in his 40's, well spoken, and clean shaven with short black hair. On each occasion he was riding a cycle, possibly a yellow mountain bike. He wears a cycle helmet and black cycling shorts.
PC Michael Phillips said; "It is clear that this man is local to the area and we are hoping that local residents may recognise the description or have other information. Anyone who can help is asked to give us a call on 101 quoting serial 0840 of 11/9."
