Man exposes himself to woman and young child in Great Yarmouth

Officers from Great Yarmouth Safer Neighbourhood Team are appealing for witnesses to an incident of exposure which took place last week in Hopton.

Between 4:15pm and 4:45pm on Thursday 1 October 2015, a woman in her early 30s and her young daughter were waiting at a bus stop on Brasenose Avenue opposite the convenience store, when they were approached by a man in his late teens who exposed his bottom to them.

He then disappeared before reappearing and speaking to them briefly before walking off.

The man is described as white, 5ft 7ins tall with light coloured short hair. At the time of the incident he was wearing a dark shiny tracksuit and sunglasses.

PC Debbie Lawson, Great Yarmouth SNT, would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or has information concerning it.

PC Lawson can be contacted on 101 or alternatively Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Twenty men have been blackmailed after an attractive young woman persuaded them to carry out explicit acts over Skype.

The men, who are aged between 17 and 36, were contacted by the blackmailer who told them their acts had been videoed.

They were told that unless they paid, the video would be posted to friends and family over social media.

The men, who are all from Hertfordshire, were approached on various sites, but mainly over Facebook.

Hertfordshire Police say that in some cases £500 has been handed over.

"This is a scam which we believe is taking place across the country and not confined to Hertfordshire. However it is important that young men are made aware that this is taking place so they do not fall victim.

– DI John Hazeldine, Hertfordshire Police

Officers believe that Welwyn and Hatfield have seen a larger proportion of offences because of the student population. They will be raising awareness in the university and are urging anyone faced with a similar approach, not to engage in such activity."
