Indecent exposure - Horncastle

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Indecent exposure - Horncastle

We are are appealing for help in identifying a man seen on the old railway path between Horncastle and Woodhall Spa.

At around 11.30 am on Saturday 25 August two women who were walking from the Leisure Centre, Horncastle, were passed by a man who was jogging in the same direction towards Woodhall Spa.  The man briefly spoke to the women. Around 5 minutes later as the women continued their walk along the track they saw the male again, he had his running tights down around his ankles and was exposing his genitals. He then ran off. 

The man is described as white, in his late 20's around 5'9 to 5'11 in height and of slender build.  He had short black hair which is described as wiry and a little curly, clean shaven and appeared well spoken. He was wearing black running tights, a bright blue long sleeved running top and unusually he was running in flip flops.  

Sarah Constantine, Neighbourhood Inspector, said: "We believe this is an isolated incident and very unusual in its nature. We want to trace this man and I believe someone will recognise the description, especially as he was running in flip flops.

“The track between Horncastle and Woodhall Spa is regularly used by dog walkers and I wouldn't want people to worry about walking along the track due to this one incident.  Someone will recognise the description of this man, in fact, I'm hoping the person in question will contact us.  Of course if anyone has any concerns or information then I’d ask them to contact us.”
