Male sought after indecent exposure in Musselburgh

Published 27 November 2016

Police in East Lothian are appealing for witnesses following an indecent exposure in Musselburgh.

The incident happened between 8.30 a.m. and 8.45 a.m. on Sunday 27th November in Carberry Road.

A 54-year-old woman was cycling in the area when a small silver car stopped near to her and a male passenger exited the vehicle.

At this time the male exposed himself to the woman before the car was driven off towards Musselburgh.

The suspect is described as white, over 6ft tall with a medium build, short to medium-length brown hair and wearing a t-shirt, possibly with a jacket over the top.

Anyone who can assist officers with their inquires into this offence is urged to come forward.

Detective Inspector Paul Batten said: "The female who witnessed this incident did not feel threatened or in any risk, but believed the suspect's behaviour to be completely inappropriate.

"We are keen to trace the vehicle and speak to the driver and other occupants, who took no part. I would ask these individuals to contact us and assist with our inquiries.

"In addition, anyone else who was on Carberry Road on Sunday morning and saw anything suspicious, or who can help us trace the suspect, should contact police immediately."

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or alternatively, the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
