A community “will not be intimidated” after multiple reports of women being terrorised by a park flasher.

The man, who was said to be in his early 20s, was reported twice to police on the same day for “acting indecently” in front of women in the park.

Another woman said she was “slapped hard on her bottom” as the man ran past her although Sussex Police could not find a record of this.

The incidents happened in Chatsworth Park, Telscombe Cliffs, on August 31 and people in the town said they “will not stop using our beautiful park”.

A letter put up in the park read: “Many people love the tranquillity of being in nature and enjoy the sense of community in the park.

“Let’s just be vigilant as a community and hopefully he will soon be caught.”

It also advised lone women and girls to avoid walking in the park early in the morning or late at night.

A solidarity walk is taking place in the park this Sunday at 5pm.

Peacehaven resident Ciarron Clarkson helped organise the walk.

He told The Argus: “It is upsetting but the real purpose is we have a vibrant community in the park and area. I met with them last week and we discussed issues like this. It became clear that people were concerned about walking in the park on their own.

“At the time I was not aware that there were other things going on. I felt we should back up the residents, we want it to be a welcoming and open park. We want people to feel like it is a safe area. This is spoiling that.

“We have invited many people to show a bit of solidarity.”

MP for Kemptown and Peacehaven Lloyd Russell-Moyle will be attending the solidarity walk.

He said: "I'll be joining the walk because everyone has the right to feel safe in our parks.

"What's heartwarming is how quickly the community has come together in solidarity, creating an environment for people to speak out about these behaviours.

"I hope there can be a swift investigation and prosecution of this particular incident."

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said: “Police are investigating reports of a man acting indecently in Chatsworth Park, Peacehaven on 31 August at around 2.15pm and 7.15pm.

“He is described as between 20 and 25 years old, 5ft 8in, slim, with short brown hair.

“Local neighbourhood policing officers are conducting patrols of the area and making house-to-house enquiries.

“Anyone with any information or relevant CCTV or doorbell footage is asked to report online or via 101, quoting crime reference 47230169783.”
