Man sought for flashing at dog walker in Fife

A man who indecently exposed himself to a female dog walker in Fife is being sought by police.

The incident happened at 15:00 on Tuesday in Laburnum Road, Methil.

The 49-year-old woman was walking in the area when the man approached her before exposing himself and then walked towards Lilac Bank.

The man was between 20 to 30 years old, of chubby build and was wearing black jeans and a distinctive black coloured waist length jacket.

He had fake diamonds sewn into his jacket.

Officers believe this incident may be linked to a previous assault on a 58-year-old woman, which took place on Main Street, Methilhill, on Tuesday 23 December.

In this incident the man was described as 20 to 30 years old, of stocky build, with unkempt hair. He was wearing a brown leather bomber-style jacket with a white T-shirt underneath, bearing a circular logo with writing.

He had a pockmarked complexion and was wearing glasses.

Det Sgt Jim McGuinness, of Police Scotland, said: " I am appealing for anyone with information regarding these crimes to contact the police.

"Whilst there is the possibility that these crimes may be linked I am keeping an open mind. Although a joint investigation is being carried out by uniform and CID officers.

"Increased patrols are now being carried out in the area and members of the public should remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to police immediately."
