Police Column: Arrest and indecent exposure

Have your say

This week’s police column, written by Sgt Rachel Blackwell, looks at an arrest, two thefts and an incident of indecent exposure.

Indecent exposure

A man exposed himself to two 12-year-old girls in Christchurch Close, Stamford at 8.10pm on Tuesday last week.

The girls noticed the man doing press-ups on a grassy area. He then cycled past them and exposed himself.

The man was white, about 5ft 5in, in his early 40s, and of medium build. He had a tanned complexion and light brown hair that came below his ears

He wore very short white shorts and a short-sleeved navy blue shirt with a collar.

So far this is an isolated report, but if you have any information that would help the inquiry please call 101, quoting incident 449 of June 25.

Theft suspect arrested

At 1.45pm on Friday last week an off-duty Bourne police officer noticed a familiar woman loading her car boot with goods in the car park at Tesco in South Road, Bourne.

The officer suspected something suspicious and questioned the woman.

The 49-year-old, who lives in Walton, Peterborough, was then arrested and later charged for the trolley-dash theft. The full value of the goods came to £226.

Theft of memorial bench

A bench dedicated to the memory of Ken Brown was stolen on Sunday night from Church Street, South Witham.

If you have any information about the whereabouts of the bench please call 101 quoting incident 282 of June 30.

Cycle stolen

On Friday a commuter returned from his day’s work in London to discover his bicycle had been stolen from the stand at Stamford railway station.

Call 101 if you saw anything.
