“A 45-year-old woman who was walking her dog reported seeing a naked male acting suspiciously in the park close to the wooded area and in an area not far from a children’s play park. The man is believed to be aged in his early to mid 20s, about 5’ 7” tall, heavy build with a ‘pot belly’ and has brown or fair hair in a style which the witness described as a ‘mop head’. He is also believed to speak with a local Scottish accent.

“At the time of the incident the weather was sunny and warm and there would have been a large number of people attending or passing through the area.”
