POLICE are appealing for witnesses and information following an indecent exposure incident in Andover.

The incident happened between 4.15pm and 5pm on Wednesday, March 30 on a footpath close to the crossing near Pets at Home in Enham Arch Retail Park.

An 11-year-old girl was walking home from school when a man approached her and exposed himself.

The man is described as:

  • White male with clear skin
  • Approximately 5ft 8inches to 6ft tall
  • Aged in his 30s
  • Slim build
  • Dark eyes and dark eyebrows
  • Wearing dark top with a hood and dark trousers/tracksuit bottoms
  • Wearing a bright multi-coloured neck scarf with straight white lines separating the colours into smaller shapes. This was pulled up and over the lower part of his face.

DC Victoria Cobley from Northern CID said: “We know this is the second indecent exposure incident that has been reported since the 27 March and as part of every investigation strategy, we review similar crime types and link where evidentially appropriate. At this stage, these incidents are not being linked but our enquiries are ongoing.

“We would like to hear from anyone who was in the area of the footpath that runs from Anton Lake, along the railway line at the back of B&M Home store and Halfords and up to the crossing near Pets at Home at around the time of the incident and saw anything suspicious."
