AN ELDERLY woman was left shaken after a man in his early 60s exposed himself to her in a hamlet near Worcester.
The woman was walking her dog through Churchill, near Broughton Hackett, on Tuesday (October 29) between 3.45pm and 4.15pm, when the man pulled up in a silver 4×4 and engaged her in conversation.
He said his name was Paul, and that he had moved to the area in the last six months, but when the conversation became more personal, the elderly woman walked away.
The man went off but a short while later drove back towards her, stopping his vehicle next to her, at which point the woman saw he had removed his clothes below the waist and was exposing himself to her. He then drove off.
The man was described as white, a thin face and thinning hair scraped back.
PC Gemma Pawlick said: “It is unusual for an incident like this to take place in such a rural area and understandably it has left the elderly lady quite shaken.
“Three or four cars passed the woman in the time she was talking to the man and I would like to speak to the drivers, who may have important information about the offender, so please contact West Mercia Police if you drove through Churchill on Tuesday afternoon.
“I am also hoping someone will recognise the description of the man responsible and come forward. If you live in the Upton Snodsbury area and have seen a man of this description, please get in touch.”
Police urge anyone with further information to contact the non-emergency number 101 or call independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
