POLICE are looking to speak to a man after two 16-year-old girls in Ashton-under-Lyne were victims of an indecent exposure.

At around 8pm on Tuesday 10 June 2014, the two girls were walking along Queens Road when they heard a man grunting on the opposite side of the road.

To avoid him, they turned down a ginnel leading to Waterloo Gardens but he followed them.

He whistled to get their attention and as they turned around, he indecently exposed himself.

The girls ran off and called police.

Police have now released an image of a man they are looking to speak to.

He is described as being white, in his 50s, 5ft 8in tall, of medium build, had grey medium length scruffy hair with a bald patch, red cheeks, stubble, wore washed out blue denim jeans and dark grey t-shirt.

Police Sergeant Adrian Girtchen said: “From what we were told the man was staggering and could have possibly have been drunk at the time. I would appeal to anyone who may have seen this man, either before or after the exposure or if you were also a victim, to contact police.

“I would also ask the man in the image to come forward and help us eliminate him from our enquiries.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 9350 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
