A group of people taking part in a boot camp in a St Albans park were left stunned when a man exposed himself in a children’s playground.
Herts Police have appealed for witnesses and information following the exposure in Longacres Park, Oakdene Way, on Friday, September 2.
At about 6.50am, a group of people were exercising in the park as part of a boot camp when some of them saw the man exposing himself in the children’s play area.
A spokeswoman for Herts Police said that no children were in the playground at that time, and one member of the group called police and gave details of the route that the offender took from the green space.
The flasher was described as a black man who was wearing black shorts, a blue Adidas tracksuit top and trainers.
