At 5.50pm a woman who had just finished work and was walking through the park  was approached by a man from the opposite direction, who pulled down his trousers and exposed himself.

Similar incidents happened on November 25 and December 16 respectively, and officers are linking the offences.

The offender is described as Caucasian, about 5ft 7in or  5ft 8in, around 25 years old and of medium build with short, curly, fair hair.

He was wearing black jogging bottoms, a raincoat and black trainer-type shoes which may have had steel toecaps.

The latest victim described him as ‘dirty looking’, as if he had been working on a building site. At the times of the other two incidents, the offender had a bicycle with him.

DC Lucy Peacock Smith said: “These are disturbing incidents for the victims, who are simply going about their everyday business.

“We are carrying out a thorough investigation to find out precisely who this individual is, and I would urge people to come forward with any information they might have.”

IF you think you recognise the man from the description given, or if you know anything about these or similar offences in the area, please call Surrey Police on 101 and quote the crime reference number 4515003199. If you would prefer not to leave your name, put in a call to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
