A man wearing see-through trousers allegedly approached two women at a Birmingham beauty spot – just a day before a man reportedly performed a sex act behind schoolgirls.
A mum-of-three was walking with a fellow mum in Sutton Park last Thursday (July 16) at around 8pm and had entered via the roadway by Streetly Gate off Thornhill Road.
The duo had met up and were walking along the tarmacked road in the direction of the car parks and Jamboree Stone when they spotted a man walking towards them.
As the man approached, the women stepped to their left to get out of the man’s way – and to keep socially distanced. But then as they did so, the man stepped towards them.
At that point they noticed the man was wearing see-though trousers which ‘looked like cling film’ and they could see his genitals.
The man then moved out of the way at the last moment and went into the wooded area.
The Sutton Coldfield mum, who works as a nurse at Good Hope Hospital, but asked not to be named, said she was ‘shocked’ by the incident.
She said: “I was walking with my friend and we were chatting when we saw a man walking towards us.
“We thought we would step aside so he could socially distance from us.
“We stepped to the left but he stepped to his right towards us from the opposite direction.
“He had plastic see-through trousers on and also was wearing a grey jumper.
“They looked like they were made from cling film. I have never seen anything like it in my life!
“He stepped away from us a the very last minute. I saw his penis.
“My friend said he went in the bushes.
“We didn’t know what to do. We were a bit shocked. I went ‘oh my god, what’s going on’. We just couldn’t believe it.
“We called 999 and phoned the police and they said they were sending a police car into the park.”
The incident came a day before a man was seen performing a sex act behind a group of schoolgirls in Sutton Park, by Longmoor Pool.
PCSO Gill Whittingham from West Midlands Police’ s Four Oaks neighbourhood police team said: “A 14-year-old female was with a group of friends in Sutton Park by Longmoor Pool when a man has sat on a bench behind them and committed a sexual act on himself whilst laying on his back, exposing his genitalia to them.
“The incident happened at on Friday (July 17) between the hours of 3.20pm and 3.30pm.
“Fortunately the girl has managed to raise the alarm by reporting it to a nearby adult and the offender has then made off on a pushbike.
“We are working closely with the offender management team to try and identify this male.
“There will also be increased patrols in the Sutton Park area over the next few days for reassurance.
“At this time we believe this to be an isolated incident, however, If you see or hear any unusual suspicious activity or have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact us on 999 if it’s an emergency or 101 and live chat via online on the West Midlands Police website.”
