Tanned flasher strikes along coastal path for a second time

Crail Harbour

A flasher who exposed himself to two women at a coastal beauty spot may have struck again, say police.

A man with a tanned complexion exposed himself to a 30-year-old woman in the East Neuk area of Fife.

The incident happened around 2.30 pm on Saturday on the coastal path between Crail and Cellardyke, near to the Caiplie Caves.

The woman was walking her dog past the caves when she saw a man exposing himself.

The suspect is described as late thirties to early forties with a tanned complexion, stocky build, dark stubble on his face and short dark hair.

He was wearing tracksuit bottoms with a white stripe down the side and a long-sleeved navy top.

Police believe the incident is linked to a similar indecent exposure that occurred on the coastal path between Crail and Cellardyke on Saturday September 30, at around 1.45pm.

The 24 and 29-year-old female victims were out walking in the afternoon, at about 1.45pm, when they came across the culprit who then exposed himself to them.

At the time he was described as having a tanned complexion, in his late thirties to early forties with short dark hair and wearing dark tracksuit bottoms with a stripe down the side and a long-sleeved navy top.

Regarding the most recent incident, Detective Sergeant Paula Warrender from Levenmouth CID said: “The woman was unhurt, however she was understandably alarmed by the man’s behaviour and promptly reported the matter to the police.

“I would urge anyone who has any information about the incident or recognises the description of the man, to contact police immediately.

“In the meantime, I would like to reassure members of the public that we will be increasing our patrols in the area and will be conducting extensive inquiries to trace the man responsible.”

Those with information can Levenmouth CID via 101 and quote incident number 3176 of the 7th October. Alternatively, an anonymous report can be made through the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
