Police investigating two indecent exposures in Colne have released images of a man they want to trace.

The first incident happened on Thursday September 12th at around 9-30pm when a woman was approached by a man at the top of Exchange Street. The offender touched the woman’s arm before exposing himself.

The second incident took place on Saturday September 14th on Albert Road close to the Bargain Booze shop. A man has approached a woman and exposed himself to her before following her towards the Skipton Building Society.

The images show a white man wearing black tracksuit clothing, although this appears white or silver in the images. These show him at the junction of Chapel Street and Albert Road.

Detective Sergeant Phil Pilkington from Pennine CID said, “I would appeal to anyone who recognises the man pictured on the CCTV images to get in touch with us. I would also 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 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
