Detectives believe a series of indecent exposures in Trafford – including one close to the Timperley tram stop on Sunday – may be linked.
Between Friday 29th May and Sunday 28th June, police received 14 reports of a man in his 20s indecently exposing himself after approaching women in Trafford.
One of the most recent incidents occurred at around 8.30pm on Sunday when a man was seen publicly exposing himself on the canal towpath close to the tram stop in Timperley.
And at around 9.40pm on the same day, a man driving a red car on Framingham Road in Sale exposed himself to a teenage girl after stopping to ask directions.
Other incidents occurred at various locations in Sale, Urmston and Flixton.
Detective Sergeant 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.
“Whilst 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 28/06/2020. Information can be passed on anonymously by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
