POLICE OFFICERS are continuing their investigation into a case of indecent exposure on the Isle of Dogs. The incident took place nearly six months ago – but police have now released a CCTV image of a suspect.
The incident took place at around 5.15pm on 31st May, on Lovegrove Walk, E14 – a small road which runs along the south of Blackwall Basin, connecting Canary Wharf with Prestons Road.
A man described as white and between 20 and 30 years old exposed himself to a 13 year old girl. He did not speak to her or try to make any physical contact with her. The girl told her mother about the incident and the police were then called.
Police are keen to identify and find the suspect and bring him to justice – to make him account for his crime, but also to stop him repeating his offence or committing an even worse one.
PC Daniel Olney, who is part of the police investigation, said, “I am keen to identify the man in the image as part of our ongoing investigation. This was understandably an upsetting incident for the young girl and her family. We are keen to identify the person responsible as soon as possible.”
