Police have arrested a man in connection with an indecent exposure in Salford.

At around 4pm on Monday 5 February 2018, police were called to reports of a man performing a lewd act in public on Broughton Road in Pendleton.

Two days later, on Wednesday 7 February 2018, police were called shortly before 3.30pm to reports of an indecent exposure on Littleton Road in Lower Kersal.

An investigation was launched into both reports and a 35-year-old man has since been arrested on suspicion of outraging public decency and explosure. He remains in custody for questioning.

Detective Sergeant Chris Doggart of GMP’s Salford borough, said: “This issue has caused a lot of distress and upset as innocent people going about their day were confronted by a man in an indecent state.

“Although we have made an arrest, our investigation into these incidents continues and we are appealing for the public’s help.

“If you have been around Lower Kersal or Pendleton and have any information about these incidents then please get in touch and share anything that could help our enquiries.”
