More flashing

The reports of local flashing, which we started getting last year, continue. A BC reader who has asked not to be named reports:

I'd like other women to be warned: Last night, I encountered a flasher on Albyn Road (about 8.30pm). A young black man who first cycled up and undid his trousers - while still cycling - to flash me and then when he didn't get a reaction after cycling past a few times and shouting something I couldn't understand. He stopped in front of me and started waving his penis at me asking me if I liked it. I have reported it to the police.

I was flashed last year on Marnock Rd (near Crofton Park Station) and the police could not have cared less- even trying to suggest to me that perhaps the man was trying to go to the toilet (think I can tell the difference between and street pee and someone flashing their bits at me!). I had to chase it up and even tell Lewisham police about their own e fit that had been published some weeks before- really bad. Hope you are ok, flashing is a serious crime and is often a precusor to other sexual crimes.

What did he look like, looks like this type of crime is getting more common.

 Its probably becoming more common due to the variety of drugs becoming more available

Yes, after all , that's the easiest thing for you to blame it on. It
couldn't possibly be lack of decent psychiatric after care or anything
like that. Let's just blame it on the one thing it tells you in the
Daily Mail is probably the cause of the worlds problems. In fact, whilst
you're at it why not just say it was cos he was black, I mean why stop
at just drugs. Ignorance in this country is as big a problem as the drug
problem (yes I agree there is one, I don't agree with constantly
blaming all the ills of an area on someone smoking a bit of pot or snorting a few lines). This kind of act is more likely due to lack of mental care/social neglect than someone who's smoked a bit too much weed. Do some proper reading.

It's the massive influx of Cake that's done it. Beware.

This is horrible. The police shouldn't even be tolerant of someone trying to pee on the street. I used to live close to this road, and not only was the issue of sexual harassment a main factor for moving, but also the number of men who thought it was widely acceptable to urinate on the street.

A bit of an over the top rant IHIIB. Other contributors are genuinely concerned with a nasty crime, whereas your problem seems to be with ethnicity, criticism of drugs and people reading a paper you don't like!

What a horrible experience for you.  What happened after you reported it to the police?  I thought that they were now taking this kind of behaviour more seriously now, as it can often be a prelude to sexual assault.  Unfortunately, I have been flashed at least 6 times in my life, the most recent in a small wood in North London, when I was sitting on a bench reading.  I even had my dog with me but that didn't seem to deter him.  I called the police and they turned up immediately and even sent a helicopter.
