Main article content
Police are appealing for information after a man exposed himself to a woman walking her dog near Rivacre woods in Ellesmere Port.
At approximately 10.08pm on Wednesday 9 February a woman was walking along Hillside Drive near the entrance to the woods when a man ran out of the woods toward her and exposed himself.
The man was holding a small folding knife at the time. He didn’t say anything to her and ran back into the woods when her dog barked at him.
The man is described as white, approximately 6ft in height, of a very slim build and in his early 30’s. He is described as having very distinctive large round eyes.
He was wearing a plain, dark, baseball cap and had long shoulder length curly hair which was sticking out the sides of the cap. He was also wearing a full length dark trench coat which is possibly leather as it appeared to be shiny and he was completely naked under the coat.
PC Mark Bell said:
“This is very concerning behaviour which we’re looking into as a priority. We have increased patrols in the area and are making a number of enquiries including CCTV and doorbell cameras. If you have any of these devices and live near the woods, please check them.
“If anyone has seen or heard anything, or seen a man fitting this description please contact us. The same goes for anyone who may have encountered this man but has not yet reported this to police.”
Anyone with information should contact Cheshire Police via this website quoting IML1197938.
