Police are appealing for witnesses after two separate incidents of indecent exposure in Swindon.

The first incident took place on Friday, September 7 shortly after 3.50pm on Pipers Way.

A female walking along the road reported seeing a man wearing red running shorts and jogging before he stopped and committed an indecent act in front of her.

The man is described as white, with short dark hair, approximately 30 years old, of slim build and approximately 6ft tall.

He was seen wearing red running shorts.

The second incident took place on Tuesday, October 2 shortly after 4.50pm on a grassed area off Shaftesbury Avenue.

Two teenage girls saw a man with his trousers down committing an indecent act before running off in the direction of Marlowe Avenue.

The man is described as white, with short white hair, grey stubble, in his late 40’s or early 50’s, of a skinny build wearing a grey short sleeved t-shirt and black jogging bottoms.

Police are not linking these two offences.

“All information, no matter how big or small, may help with the investigation and will be treated with the strictest confidence.

“As a result of these incidents we will be increasing patrols in both locations.”
