DETECTIVES have released more information about the alleged activities of a flasher in Trafford.

Fourteen reports were received of a man indecently exposing himself around Sale, Urmston and Flixton between last Friday and last Sunday.

And as revealed by the Messenger, a suspect was apprehended with the use of a police dog.

An appeal has now been issued for further witnesses, amid alleged sightings of a flasher around bus stops, Urmston Meadows and Metrolink stops near to Brooklands and Timperley.

One report was made on Sunday when, at around 8.30pm, a man was seen on the canal towpath walking towards the tram stop in Timperley publicly exposing himself.

Another report was made on the same day at around 9.40pm, say police, when a man who was driving a red car on Framingham Road in Sale stopped to ask a teenage girl for directions to the Trafford Centre. When he opened the car door he was indecently exposed from the waist down.

Detectives have confirmed that a 22-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure and has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

Det Sgt Elizabeth Mercer-Smith of GMP’s Trafford District said: “These were vulgar incidents that have left women in the area feeling vulnerable and apprehensive when going out in their own neighbourhood.

“While we have made one arrest our investigation is still ongoing and I would implore anyone who has any information about this crude behaviour to please contact police as soon as possible.”

Anyone with any information should contact police on 0161 856 7527 or 101 quoting incident number 2252 of June 28.
