Man dressed as woman exposes himself

A MAN dressed in women's clothing has been exposing himself to other men in Worcester.

Police have received a number of reports this month of a man wearing a long black wig and often a black mackintosh or denim skirt, exposing himself to other men in Tolladine, and particularly in Holly Mount Road.

Most of the incidents have taken place in the early hours of the morning, including on Wednesday, March 7 at 4.50am when he exposed himself to a man in Holly Mount Road and then chased after him towards Tunnel Hill.

Police are now appealing for witnesses and victims to come forward.

Inspector Janet Heritage, who leads local policing in Worcester, said: "I would like to hear from anyone who has seen or been the focus of attention from this man.

"Local men who have been targeted may not have taken the incident seriously, but some of his victims have felt intimidated, especially in the very early hours, and we are concerned that his offending may become more serious."

"Please contact West Mercia Police if you have seen or experienced anything."

A man in his 20s was arrested on Wednesday (March 28) in relation to the exposures and released on police bail with conditions that include a night curfew.

Inspector Heritage can be contacted via the non-emergency police number 101 or information can be passed on anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
