Police in Camden are appealing for women to stay alert or to come forward if they have been victims of a man exposing himself in the Haverstock Hill area.
Officers were called to reports of a man exposing himself to passersby in Steele’s Road, Steele’s Village, on Wednesday, October 28 at just after 5pm.
The suspect was seen sitting in a doorway and, as a number of women walked past, he stood up and pulled his trousers down exposing himself.
Police attended the scene and arrested a 38-year-old man on suspicion of indecent exposure.
He has been detained for treatment under the Mental Health Act and will return on bail in January 2015.
