A 49-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested in relation to indecent exposure incidents in Fordingbridge.

Police say the man, who is from the New Forest area, was arrested yesterday (Sunday, February 2) in connection with six indecent exposure incidents that occurred on Frog Lane on June 6, Sept 13, Jan 22, Jan 25, and two incidents on Jan 28.

A statement released by Hampshire Constabulary said: "He has been questioned by officers and released from custody, but remains under investigation to allow for further enquiries."

The most recent incident is reported to have happened just before 1pm on Tuesday, January 28, in Frog Lane days after the other incident which occurred on Saturday, January 25 at 3.20pm.

In that case, police said a man was reportedly seen masturbating in a field near the sewage works on Frog Lane by a woman who was out walking her dogs.

Anyone who has witnessed these incidents or believe they have also seen a man behaving in this way in the Frog Lane area who has not made contact with us, is asked to call 101.
