Police hunt for school flasher

A HUNT has been launched for a flasher who is believed to have struck twice - with one incident taking place on land near a Doncaster school site.

Police are appealing for information following two incidents of indecent exposure, which were both reported on the same day.

One of the incidents was on land close to Hall Cross Lower School, which has pupils as young as 11.

Both happened late last month, the day before schools broke up for the six-week summer holidays.

A police spokeswoman said: “On Thursday, July 21, a man was reported to have indecently exposed himself twice between 4pm and 5pm.

“He was first seen on the path between Stoops Lane, Bessacarr, and Lakeside Boulevard, behind Hall Cross Lower School, where he indecently exposed himself.

“He was then also reported to have exposed himself on the paths around the lake at Lakeside.”

Officers who are trying to track down the man have issued a description of their suspect.

He was white and approximately 50-years-old.

He was said to be between 5ft 8ins tall and was overweight in build.

He was wearing an orange T-shirt with black shorts and black trainers.

He also had a black framed mountain bike with grey swirls on the crossbar.
