Police are investigating two reports of indecent exposure in the Cowbridge area and are urging the public to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious activity.
Both incidents occurred on the footpath between Cowbridge Comprehensive and the town centre, with the first reported on the morning on January 6, and the most recent at approximately 9.30am today.
The victim of the first incident reported a man in his 30s acting strangely on the footpath before disappearing in to a side street. As the victim walked past, the man, who was wearing a red checked shirt with a jumper over the top, was exposing himself.
During this morning’s incident, the two victims were walking toward the school when someone shouted to attract their attention. They then saw a white man with jeans around his ankles.
PC Jamie Williamson, who is investigating the two incidents, said: “These were distressing incidents for the young victims concerned and we are taking their reports extremely seriously.
“A number of enquiries are underway, and we are urging anyone with any information which could assist our investigation, to come forward.
“I appreciate the incidents will have caused concern locally, especially given the proximity to the comprehensive school, however I would urge people not to panic and rather to remain vigilant. Please report any suspicious behaviour, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to us so that we can fully investigate.”
Anyone with information relating to the incidents is asked to contact 101 quoting occurrence 2000037258 (January 31 incident) or 2000006068 (January 6 incident).
