POLICE are hunting two flashers who indecently exposed themselves to women in Colne.
In the first incident, a woman was approached at the top of Exchange Street by an offender who touched her arm before exposing himself.
The incident happened on Thursday September 12 at around 9.30pm.
He was described as 5ft 6in tall with a slim build and was wearing a black hooded top, plain white T-shirt and trainers.
The second incident took place on Saturday September 14 on Albert Road close to the Bargain Booze shop. A man approached a woman and exposed himself to her before following her towards the Skipton Building Society.
He was described as white, aged in his 40’s and around 5ft 6in tall with a large build and bald. He was wearing black tracksuit clothing.
Detective Sergeant Phil Pilkington, from Pennine CID, said, “I would appeal to anyone who was in either area at the time and who may have witnessed any suspicious activity to come forward and contact the police.
“Although the two victims were not physically hurt they have clearly been left shaken following their ordeal. We need to find the men responsible and bring them to justice.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Colne Police on 101 quoting log reference number or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org.
