Witnesses sought to Bognor Regis exposure offence

Police are seeking witnesses to an incident in which a man exposed himself to a woman in a Bognor Regis park.

About 8pm on Sunday, May 20, a local woman was jogging across a rugby pitch off Hawthorn Road when a man sitting on the ground exposed himself to her.

He then stood up but did not follow her as she ran off.

PC Trevor Pritchard said; “The man is described as white, in his forties, with a shaven head, and was wearing a grey zip-up hoody. He had what appeared to be a distinctive tattoo in the shape of a cross on his forehead.

“We know there were several other people nearby at the time and we are asking them to contact us via 101 quoting serial 1482 of 20/5.”

A 51-year old local man was arrested on suspicion of exposure and was subsequently released on police bail until June 30, while enquiries continue.
