Share this article

A man has handed himself over to police after seeing pictures of a suspected flasher in Ilkeston.

The 24-year-old took action after Derbyshire police found and circulated CCTV images which showed two men on South Street at 9.15pm on August 15.

He was granted bail to return to St Mary’s Wharf Police Station, Derby, at the end of November.

The man has not been charged and enquiries are continuing.

A police spokesman said he had been questioned about ‘sexual exposure’ after ‘handing himself in’ at 11pm on Monday.

The initial police statement told how a man shouted to a 35-year-old woman who was in South Street with four children, aged between seven ad 14.

The woman spotted two men on the pavement between Ilkeston Library and The Charter pub.

One of the man then exposed himself to the family before running off with his friend into The Charter.

Soon after, they left the pub and ran around the corner on to Market Street.

Police issued the pictures in the hope that people would be able to recognise the pair and pass on their names to the force.

One of the men was described as white, in his mid 20s and between 5ft 8ins and 6ft tall.

He was wearing grey jogging bottoms and a jacket which was either shiny or had a shiny motif.

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
