Police appeal over 'crass' Aberdeen indecent exposures

Police have appealed for information after four women were the victims of indecent exposures in two incidents in Aberdeen.

A man exposed himself to two women at Langdykes Avenue, near Altens Industrial Estate, at about 20:00 on Tuesday.

Two women were also targeted at Duthie Park about 21:25.

Police Scotland said inquiries were being carried out to establish if the incidents were linked.

They said the victims had been left "disturbed".

'Crass behaviour'

The man in the earlier incident was described as being aged 30 to 50, 5ft 9in to 5ft 10in tall, of average build, with short, black hair, slight stubble and a tanned complexion.

He was said to be wearing a black waterproof-type jacket with a hood, dark trousers and dark shoes.

The man in the second incident was described as being 40 to 60 years old, about 5ft 7in tall, of an average build, with dark hair which was balding on top.

It is understood he was wearing a waist-length black jacket, a dark grey hooded top underneath, and dark blue jeans.

Det Sgt Andrew Machray, who is leading the investigation, said: "I know that a spate of such crass behaviour will be a worry for the public.

"No-one has been harmed or approached during any of these incidents, however I would still urge people to be on their guard particularly if you are out after it gets dark."
