POLICE are appealing for information after a “suspicious man exposing himself” was spotted in Highclere woodlands.

On Monday, September 7, at around 7am, Andover resident Craig Upton was travelling to work in Didcot when he spotted the man, who was wearing nothing but a latex black mask.

He told the Advertiser: “He was stood at a five-bar gate in a layby near the A34 turning, in the woodlands near Highclere, naked with a latex black mask on.

“He was just stood, staring at the traffic like a horror movie, and then when we drove back past after turning around, he was running off.”

Craig reported what he saw to the police, who are now appealing for any information.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokesperson said: “We received a report from a member of the public regarding the sighting of a suspicious man exposing himself to traffic at around 7am yesterday morning (7 Sept) along the A343 from Highclere towards the A34.

“Did you see what happened? Were you in the area at the time? Perhaps you have dash-cam footage which may assist the investigation.

“Anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting 44210359192.”

It comes after police searched the same area following similar reports in July, but were unable to locate anyone in connection to the alleged incident.
