Police are seeking a man on a mountain bike, who is suspected of indecent exposure offences in a Crawley park.

Each has taken place in Tilgate Forest.

The most recent offence was at 12.40pm on September 11 when a woman reported seeing a man exposing himself in the woods next to Tilgate Forest Business Park.

A previous similar offence took place in the Forest on March 28 this year, and on September 5 the woman who reported that offence also saw him cycling towards the golf course there.

The man is described as white, aged in his 40s, well spoken, and clean shaven with short black hair. On each occasion he was riding a cycle, possibly a yellow mountain bike. He wears a cycle helmet and black cycling shorts.

PC Michael Phillips said; “It is clear that this man is local to the area and we are hoping that local residents may recognise the description or have other information. Anyone who can help is asked to give us a call on 101 quoting serial 0840 of 11/9.”
