Garstang indecent exposure driver sought by police

Police are appealing for information after a naked man repeatedly exposed himself to several women across Garstang and Wyre on Wednesday night (29th May).
Officers are currently investigating five separate reports between 4.45pm and 8.00pm whereby a man, described as being white and aged between 40 and 60 years old, has indecently exposed himself to passing members of the public.
The first incident took place on Castle Lane, Garstang near to Sainsburys around 4.45pm. The same man was later seen at 7pm at Nateby near to Garstang Gym on Longmoor Lane before being spotted again at 7.30pm on Ainspool Lane in Churchtown.
Further reports were received at 7.45pm on Brock Road, Great Eccleston and lastly at 8pm on Thistleton Lane in Thistleton.
The man is believed to be travelling in a green Peugeot 206 car but despite a police search of the area the man was not found.
Each incident appears to be random and it is not believed that any of the women were deliberately targeted.
DI Andy Bunn from Wyre CID said: “I would appeal to anybody who thinks they have seen this man either last night or on any other occasion to contact police.
“I’d be particularly keen to hear from anybody that has seen a green Peugeot 206 car hanging around the area or if anybody has obtained a registration.
“These appear to be isolated incidents in which no violence or threats have been made towards any of the victims but nonetheless I’d encourage women to be extra vigilant.
“Members of the public should be reassured that an investigation is underway and anyone with any information should contact Lancashire Police on 101.”
