‘Lost’ youth was flasher

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A YOUTH who stopped a woman and asked her for di­rec­tions turned out to be a vile flasher.

As she tried to ex­plain the way to go, she looked round to find he’d yanked out his man­hood and was mas­tur­bat­ing.

He’d ap­proached the 49-year-old woman as she strolled along the canal path be­tween Chal­ford Park and the Daneway in Stroud, Gloucs.

Po­lice said “A young man was walk­ing be­hind her and asked for di­rec­tions to Chal­ford.

“The woman be­came aware that the youth was ex­pos­ing him­self and per­form­ing a lewd act and she walked away.

“He was around 16 or 17 years of age, about 5ft 8ins tall and of medium to slim build. He had col­lar length straight brown hair and was wear­ing a red anorak and dark coloured jog­ging bottoms.”
