Police are appealing for witnesses after a man indecently exposed himself in Welwyn Garden City.

At around 3.30pm on Tuesday, June 12, two women aged 35 and 42 were driving along Ridgeway when the offender, who was standing next to the wooded area, exposed himself.

He then ran off into a wooded area.

The man is described as white, aged 20 to 30 years old and with mousey brown hair that is short on the back and sides and longer on top. He was wearing a blue T-shirt with a logo on it and grey tracksuit bottoms.

DC Christopher Aherne, who is investigating, said today (June 19): “The actions of this individual are completely unacceptable and I am appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident, or anyone who has information about it, to get in touch with me.

“During the incident, the offender appeared to be challenged by another male who followed him as he made off.

“I would like to also hear from this person as they may have information that can help us.”

Anyone with information can contact officers via non-emergency number 101.
