Man Dressed As Woman Exposes Himself In Worcester

Police are appealing for witnesses and potential victims to come forward in relation to a man dressed in women’s clothing exposing himself in Worcester.

Police have received a number of reports in March of a man wearing a long black wig and women’s clothes – often a black mackintosh or a denim skirt – exposing himself to other men in Tolladine, particularly in Holly Mount Road.

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

A man in his 20s was arrested yesterday in relation to this incident and released on police bail with conditions that include a night curfew.

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.”

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. Please quote the reference number 278S 08/03/12.
