Brighton detectives appeared on Crimewatch last night (Wednesday 8 September) to try to catch a flasher.

The Sussex Police Anti-Victimisation Unit took part in the BBC programme to appeal for information about a case of repeated indecent exposure.

An investigation is under way into a number of incidents involving a man harassing and exposing himself to a woman living in Ditchling Road, Brighton.

Detective Constable Phill Stemp said: “PCSOs have been supporting the investigation team by visiting residents and businesses in the Ditchling Road area.

“We believe the man is local.

“I’m asking people to take time to properly look at the images of the man.

“Do you think you recognise him?

“If so, please contact us immediately.”

The first incident was reported in April last year when the man entered the woman’s garden and repeatedly banged on the front door.

His behaviour continued sporadically, culminating in an incident on Sunday 21 February this year.

On that occasion the man returned to the woman’s home and exposed himself to her after spending a number of hours in her garden.

The man is described as white, of medium build and with short dark receding hair.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Sussex Police on 0845 6070999 or to call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
