Officers are linking the seven incidents which have occurred in the area since May 1.

There were three incidents on Sunday evening (May 4) in East Road and Ferrars Way. A man on a bike exposed himself to women.

The latest incident happened at about 3pm on Tuesday (May 6) in Coldhams Common. A man on a bike exposed himself.

The offender has been riding a bike in some of the incidents and is described as tanned and often wearing a hooded top.

Patrols have been increased in the area.

Detective Chief Inspector Lorraine Parker said: “These are unpleasant incidents and we want to make people aware so they can be alert.

“I would appeal to anyone with information about these incidents to contact police.

“In particular I would urge anyone who sees this man committing offences to call 999.”

Anyone with any information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
