Flasher carried a knife

Police are appealing for help from the public to identify a man who is wanted for questioning in connection with an incident of indecent exposure. 

On Friday, 17 May, at around 3:10pm a woman was approached on Hackney Marshes, by a man who was in possession of a knife. 

The man held the knife in a threatening way and exposed himself. When the woman screamed the suspect fled. 

A short time later, police received further reports of a man, of the same description, continuing to expose himself in the Hackney area. 

The suspect is described as a light skinned black man, aged between 20 and 30 years old. He was wearing a khaki jacket/anorak with the hood up and dark tracksuit trousers. The man possibly wears his hair in braids. 

Anyone who has information concerning the identity of the man is asked to call officers at the Central East Command Unit via 101 quoting reference Cad 4711/17May19, Tweet @MetCC or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
