Detectives investigating a series of indecent exposures in Yateley have released three e-fits as part of their investigation. 

Officers believe at least three of the incidents have been committed by the same person and have issued the images to see if anyone recognises the man or men. 

The latest incident occurred around 6.15pm on Wednesday, May 25 when a 19-year-old woman was approached as she walked through an alleyway between Hanford Lane and Hall Farm Crescent. A man was ahead of her in the alleyway, and he turned and made a lewd comment before indecently exposing himself. He then ran off. 

The previous incident occurred in Hawley Green around 5.30pm on Saturday, April 30. Three teenage girls were approached by a man who exposed himself and made a lewd comment. He then ran off in the direction of Hawley Road.

The earlier incident occurred around 5.50pm on Monday, April 25 when a 16-year-old girl was walking along Vigo Lane. As she approached Dickens Way, a man who exposed himself to her and made a lewd suggestion. 

Two other incidents, one around 6am on Thursday, May 19 in Potley Hill Road as a woman was out jogging, and one in Old Welmore on Tuesday, May 17 when a man exposed himself to an 88-year-old woman in her garden, are also being included within the investigation. 

Detective Constable Mark Ogburn, from Aldershot CID, said: “We have been reviewing these incidents and the descriptions from the victims and we are now looking at whether at least three of these indecent exposures have been committed by the same man. 

“Do you recognise any of the e-fits? If so, please get in touch. I’d also like to once again appeal to anyone who has any information about who may be responsible for these crimes to contact us in confidence. Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could be important."
