Hunt for man who exposed himself to girls
POLICE are hunting a man who exposed himself to girls twice in the space of a few minutes.
The offender is claimed to have flashed in front of two girls as they were walking along Thornton Avenue on the Weston estate on the morning of Tuesday, January 6.
The man then crossed the road and exposed himself again.
The suspect is described as being in his 30s, tall, skinny with blond hair.
He was wearing a dirty green waist-length jacket.
The incident happened in an area close to Ivy Bank Primary School, Macclesfield Academy and Macclesfield College.
