COPS have stepped up patrols in Brierley Hill after two incidents of indecent exposure within a few days.

A man exposed himself to a 40-year-old woman and her daughter, aged six, as they walked through an alley between Hawbush Road and Addison Road at around 4.45pm on September 4.

Another incident involving a man of a similar description happened on Hawbush Road at around 2.30pm on August 27.

Prior to the September incident the woman was suspicious of the man's behaviour as she approached the scene and took a photograph of him.

Police have now released the image, Pc Ryan Clayes, from Dudley police, said: “This was a very distressing for the mother and daughter and we are working hard to catch this culprit, but we need the communities help.”

Update - No charges by police were ever brought in connection with this appeal.
