A woman says she was followed down an alleyway before she turned around to see a man expose himself and touch himself inappropriately.

The victim was walking on a path, just off Highfield Way, on the edge of Rickmansworth, between 7pm and 7.15pm on Monday October 1 when she  witnessed the indecent exposure in front of her.

Shaken by what she saw, she hurriedly walked away into Hill Rise while the suspect left in the opposite direction back to Highfield Way.

The only description that has been given is that the man was wearing a red top.

PC Sarah Legrove: “Enquiries are continuing at this time to trace to the suspect. I am appealing for anyone who may have seen a man acting suspiciously in the area around the time stated to please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Legrove via email to sarah.legrove@herts.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting crime reference 41/42749/18.
