Man sought for alleged sex offence

First published in News

POLICE would like to identify this man in connection with a sexual offence.

It is alleged he exposed himself to staff serving at the Mr Chippy take away store in Sutton Road. It happened at around 10.50am on Thursday, July 3.

He placed an order at the shop and as the woman serving turned around to prepare it he dropped his trousers.

He is described as a white man, in his late 40s to early 50s and around 5ft 8ins to 5ft 10ins tall and of medium build. He was wearing a grey tracksuit and a dark cap which had a white band on the front.

Anybody who recognises him is asked to contact PC William Cheung at Southend via Essex Police 101 or they can call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

hilarious ! in days past everyone would have had a right laugh over it, but in these PC days the poor bloke will probably end up on some stupid 'register' for the rest of his life...... people need to rediscover a sense of humour, I mean what sort of miserable **** would call crime stoppers over that ?

Perhaps someone who doesn't want to be flashed by a 50 year old d*ck?

Yes, there is a funny side, but if the shop worker called the police, does give you the arousing (pun intended) suspicion that she wasn't impressed with the package?

You'll be surprised at the number of people who have done something similar to this and were later diagnosed with serious - and sometimes dangerous - mental problems who are now locked up indefinitely in a mental hospital.

We seem to have a real problem with these deviants. There's no deterrent. They flaunt our laws because they don't fear them. This is no light matter, it's indicative of a wider chaos within our society and is no cause for juvenile quips.
If nothing else, think of the poor woman, who must have been terrified.

"terrified" ! in the 2nd world war, women scooped TNT into bomb cases whilst the Luftwaffe circled over head, that's what you might call 'terrifying'...... an incident such as this probably wouldn't have made the canteen banter 20 minutes later......

You don'y lock folk up in mental hospitals for exposing themselves, folk are locked up when they pose a risk to themselves or others.

'Flashing your assets' in a 'chippy' is unwise and can be offensive but labelling him seriously mentally ill is unfair.

There is enough stigma attached to mental illness as it is without labelling stupid little boys who cannot keep their pants up, as being mentally ill, stupid maybe, but please don't associate them with folk who really struggle to cope with life but never do these things.

I know a a lot of folk with long term mental illnesses that actually go out and do a hard weeks work.

If some of the folk that wander our streets worked half as hard as some folk with mental health problems or were as trustworthy, life would be so much better for us all.

Shops, offices, and hospitals, 1 in four may have a mental health problem, ... you will find someone with a mental health problem in every walk of life ... without even knowing it!

Did the Lady get an eyeful of manhood or just a glimpse of M & S boxers ? Not enough in the way of facts to know . So lets just say it may have been a belt malfunction !

I never said they get locked up for exposing themselves. I said that those individuals are sometimes later found to have serious - and sometimes dangerous - mental problems which results in them being sectioned under the mental health act. Read it again, and you'll (hopefully) see that what I actually said, and what you think I said is completely different.

I never labeled him 'seriously mentally ill'. I don't know the fella, it would be genuinely stupid to label a person you don't know or have never met. I said that some people who have done this sort of thing in the past were found to be suffering from serious - and sometimes dangerous - mental problems who are now locked up indefinitely in a mental hospital. I know this for a fact through previous experiences.

Things like this are really pointless to pursue for the police. Maybe if he was exposing himself to children outside a school, different story. I'm sure the workers at this chip shop have seen a penis before. Or have they? If it was a woman exposing themselves to a man, complete different story. No harm done in the eyes of the law.

Can I just say that I have had someone expose themselves to me and at first I was laughing but then realised that this wasn't a laughing matter. To have someone expose themselves is vile and degrading, so I hope that you don't ever have a partner, wife mum or daughter have this happen to.
This man looks like someone who came into my place of work on Sunday, and if it is, he did appear to have some kind of mental health problem, so before making fun of this, think how you would feel if this was your wife
