The suspect, who is described as white, 170-180cm tall, of medium build and with a round face, shouted at her before exposing himself and then walked off towards the estate on the other side of the green.

He was wearing a red woolly hat, dark joggers and a dark rain coat, and had a Staffordshire bull terrier with him.
