Herts Police are seeking the man


Three women have been flashed at by a man in separate incidents in St Albans over the past week.

Herts Police are appealing for a woman believed to be a possible victim of one of these incidents to contact them.

Officers are also seeking witnesses and information following the three indecent exposures in St Albans and Radlett.

At about 2.30pm on Saturday March 7, a woman was walking down a busy footpath, the Alban Way, when she turned around and saw a man who was exposing himself.

Shortly after, at about 3.20pm, another woman was walking down York Road, when it is believed the same man followed her over the railway bridge and down York Road, before shouting offensive comments at her and flashing at her.

The third incident took place a day later in Radlett, at 3.30pm on Sunday March 8.

A woman was seen by a witness walking down Watling Street near the footbridge over a brook, when she was approached by a man who was exposing himself.

The man is described as white, approximately 5ft 8ins to 6ft tall, with short brown/black hair, wearing light blue jeans, a long white jumper and dark blue/black surfer style sunglasses.

Sergeant Noel Buckley from Borehamwood’s Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “We are currently following a line of enquiry that these incidents could be linked and I am appealing for anyone who witnessed these offences to come forward.

“In particular, we are keen to speak to the woman we believe is the victim of the offence in Radlett.

“We’d really like to trace this woman to offer our support and also see if she can give us any more information which could help our investigation.

“If this was you, or you were in the area and witnessed anything, please contact us on non-emergency number 101.”

Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
