First published in News

DETECTIVES have released an e-fit of a man they want to speak to following a sex offence in Colchester.

A man exposed himself in an alleyway off Hamlet Drive, Colchester, in full public view.

He carried out an indecent act on himself at 1.20pm on Friday, June 6.

Officers have tried to find the man themselves and are now appealing for help from the public.

The man is believed to have been spying on a woman through a gap in her garden.

He ran off when he was spotted.

The man is white, with dark brown short cropped hair.

He was in his early 20s, of slim to medium build and was wearing dark blue denim shorts, a grey t-shirt and had light stubble on his face.

If you recognise the man please call PC Keith Sargeant at Colchester police station on 101.

People can also leave details anonymously by calling independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

First comment. On your own doorstep and cops said forget it? Wow, this is unbelievable..We would have had at least two or three units at your house within minutes, and searched for the pervert til we found him. And other, to wait since June to alert the public, I am floored.No wonder you people get updet and disgusted with your police dept.

Should have said he was speeding in his car, they would've responded then.

Yup, I gave a full description of what he was wearing, a car turned up and said they saw someone matching the description in the area but he disappeared and that he was probably just drunk so don't worry about it.. πŸ‘‹πŸ‘Œ

I suppose that the effort and resources put into trying to make our footpaths safe over the past months by catching the murderer who is about has preoccupied and stretched the Force to its limits.

It’s incidents such as this which lower the quality of life for us all.

As Public Sector cuts bite and we have a smaller number of Officers I suppose this is level the of service we will have to get used.

Nikki, three hours ago I posted a response to your comment - it's vanished! We will give the standard the benefit, and say it was a tech glitch - did you get a crime reference number? If not, you have a duty to (for the sake of others) ,to call the police and ask for it, and then start the process if a formal complaint about the way you were treated. If you find this difficult post me for help - I will put you in touch with a no fee help.
