Lewes woman followed by naked man

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a man exposed himself to a woman in Lewes on Sunday.

The woman, who is in her mid-20s, was running along Offham Road from the direction of the A275 at around 7.30 to 7.40am when she saw a naked male standing in the trees a few hundred metres down the road.

The man was touching himself and the woman speeded up to run past him. As she passed him he shouted out to her and then followed her down the road, although she managed to quickly lose him.

A 67-year-old local man has been arrested for an offence under the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and has been bailed until May 10 pending further enquiries.

Police would like to hear from anyone who may have seen a man acting suspiciously in the area at the time of the incident or anyone who saw a man walking a large dog around the same time.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Sussex Police on 0845 60 70 999 quoting serial 406 of 3/4.
