Hunt is on for Staxton flasher

POLICE are continuing to hunt for a flasher who has been spotted in two separate incidents recently.

Two witnesses told officers of an encounter where they encountered a 40-year-old man who was naked apart from a blue top at Hazel Bush Lane, near York, on Thursday at 6pm.

This was followed 24 hours later when an alarmed member of the public reported seeing the man, this time completely in the nude, in the car park at Staxton Hill.

It follows on from an incident at Staxton Hill early last month where a man fitting the same description had been naked apart from a pair of trainers.

A police spokesman asked the public to contact the force immediately if confronted by the man in the future and to take down any details such as a car registration.
