Indecent Exposure in Crawley

A month on and Sussex Police are still asking for assistance in identifying a man who exposed himself to a young girl in Crawley.

The incident occurred just after 4 o’clock the afternoon of March 19th on Ifield Avenue.

The man was riding a bike and as he passed the 12 year-old girl, he exposed himself. He later passed her again, indecently assaulting her.

The suspect is described as white with tanned skin, dark blonde collar-length curtain hair with bits of grey, and stubble.
