A MAN has been spotted performing a sex act on himself in Leigh.

A 38-year-old woman has complained to police after seeing a man indecently exposing himself on two occasions.

On May 5 at about 1.20pm the woman was in her garden and saw a man performing a sex act in Leigh Road before walking away.

Four days earlier, at about 3.30pm, she saw the same man with his hands down the front of his trousers, touching himself at a bus stop where she was waiting.

He walked a short distance away but returned to the woman’s side still touching himself.

The man is described as white, in his mid-to-late teens, about 5ft 8in tall, of slim build, with short dirty blonde or light brown hair and no facial hair.

He was wearing a grey hooded sweat top with a long black body warmer which came down to mid-thigh over the top and jogging bottoms which had a yellow or brown stain down the legs.

PC Barrie Willans said: “At best this woman has been left embarrassed and at worst these offences are causing her to feel alarmed and distressed.

“People should be able to walk about in public spaces without fear of such lewd incidents and we are working hard to identify the person responsible.

“We believe the same man is responsible for both the incidents and I would urge anyone with information to call us.

“I also want the community to be aware of these incidents, if you are approached by a man similar to the one described by the woman please do not approach or engage with him but leave the area and call the police.”

Police have released an e-fit of the man they think is responsible.

The point Jim271 is trying to get through is that if this w@nker had have been non white this story would never have been published.If you can't see the double standards in the media then you must have your head stuck up your @ss.

If it was a non-white then comments would not be allowed, and you well know it.
