YOUNG girls in South Yorkshire flashed at by a man on the school run have helped police compile e-fits of the culprit.

The four children, aged between 10 and 13, were interviewed by specially trained officers and police believe the same man was responsible for all four incidents.

He is aged between 30 and 40 years old, between 5ft 8ins and 6ft tall, slim, with a pale complexion and distinctive wrinkles around his mouth and eyes.

His hair is short, possibly dark grey or brown, and on each occasion he wore ‘workman’ style clothes, including a sleeveless high visibility jacket.

Police officers investigating the incidents, which all happened in the Kimberworth and Clifton areas of Rotherham, have warned children and parents to be on their guard.

They have also stepped up patrols in a bid to deter the flasher from striking again.

The first incident happened on Friday, June 10 at a bus stop opposite Clifton Comprehensive School; the second was on Friday, July 22, at a bus stop on Kimberworth Road, Ferham; the third was on Thursday, October 6 at a bus stop on New Wortley Road, Kimberworth and the fourth was on Wednesday, October 12 at a bus stop on Meadowhall Road, at the end of the drive to Meadow View Primary School.

Superintendent Andrew Parker said: “This is very unusual and very distressing for the young victims involved.

“We have extra patrols in areas we have identified as hotspots and where incidents are most likely to occur.

“There has been no attempt to touch or abduct any of the children but my advice is to walk away immediately and if there is any sense of physical harm then scream as loud as possible and head towards an adult and get back to school.

“People then need to write down everything they saw or heard straight away, including a full description of the man because it gives us the best chance of catching him.”

“I don’t want to panic people but clearly we do want to catch him,” he said.
