Serial flasher: GMP issue e-fit of Bolton perv who exposed himself FIVE times in 6 hours

Bolton’s serial flasher, who exposed himself to a 14-year-old girl and four women between 23 and 41 in just six hours, is still on the loose but police have managed to put together an e-fit  of the pervert.

These five vulgar incidents, which took place in the Willows Lane, Deane Church Lane and Minerva Road areas, all happened between 5-11am on Saturday June 6 – no one was injured.

Detective Inspector Charlotte Cadden assured the community that GMP are doing everything they can to catch this pervert.

She said: “I would like to reassure the local community that we have extra neighbourhood officers patrolling the area in a bid to prevent further incidents.

“There is also a dedicated team of officers investigating this series of crimes and following all possible lines of enquiry to identify this man.

“One man from Bolton was arrested in connection with the offences on the 6th June, but he has since been eliminated from the enquiry.”


WANTED: A police e-fit of the man who committed five cases of indecent exposure on Saturday June 6

The offender is described as being white with very pale skin and a slim build, in his 30s, has short brown hair and is around 5ft 8in tall.

He wore blue jogging bottoms or jeans, a white t-shirt, scruffy brown shoes or trainers and a green coat.

Now police have issued an image and are urging anyone who recognises him to contact police as soon as possible.

Yesterday GMP also released CCTV footage of a man wanted in connection with another case of indecent exposure to a girl of just 15 on Deane Church Lane, close to the junction with Chulsey Street, at around 12:30pm on Sunday June 28.

The teenager was approached by a man, who tried to engage in conversation with her before exposing himself to her as they walked along – she was left ‘upset and shaken’ by the ‘terrifying’ ordeal.

The man then ran in the direction of Wigan Road, but is believed to have then run along Back Deane Church Lane shortly after the offence took place.

DI Cadden said: “The young girl was left understandably upset and shaken by this incident, which was terrifying to her at the time.”

That offender is described as white, around 6ft tall, in his late 30s, with dark brown hair and a slim build.

He was wearing a brown or khaki waist-length jacket and dark blue jeans.

The detective inspector also issued a direct warning to all women in the area while these men are still on the loose.

She said: “I would also like to remind women walking in this area to remain alert to their surroundings and report any man matching the above description, or anyone acting suspiciously, to police.”

Anyone with information about any of these incidents or who recognise either of the men involved should phone police on 0161 856 5758 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
