Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was seen masturbating in a park.

On January 8 at about 8am, a woman in her 40s was leaving Hylands Park, in Hornchurch, through the Osborne Road exit when she noticed a man standing near the bushes by the railings.

It was only when she got closer to the man that she realised he was masturbating inside his trousers.

Two teenage girls were also leaving the park through the Osborne Road exit at about 8.25am on the same day, when a man near the entrance indecently exposed himself.

He followed the girls out of the park but did not attempt to speak to them.

The suspect is described as a white man, aged in his 30s or early 40s, and about 6ft 2ins tall with short brown hair.

He was wearing dark jogging bottoms, a dark zip up hoody and trainers.

Det Con Abby Brown, from Havering CID, said: “I am keen for anyone with information to come forward.

“We will treat all intelligence received in the strictest confidence and will investigate every lead.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Detective Constable Abby Brown on 101, quoting reference 540865/15 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
