Police seek man who flashed old woman in Stratfield Road in Borehamwood
An elderly woman was left shaken after a man indecently exposed himself to her in an alley.
The man, who is believed to be in his 20s, approached the 82-year-old as she was walking near Stratfield Road in Borehamwood last Monday.
The man, who had been seen loitering in the communal entrance of a block of flats nearby, then exposed himself and walked off.
Police are asking anyone who was in the area between 12.30pm and 1pm and who might have seen something to come forward.
The man was wearing a dark blue or black hooded jacket with a zip and dark jeans. The hood was up, partially covering his face. He was also smoking.

“We believe there may have been other people in the area at the time who may have seen something. I am especially keen to speak to these people.”
