A cyclist indecently exposed himself to a woman and her two children in Ipswich.

A man approached a 43-year-old woman and her two young children from behind and cycled past her in Defoe Road at the junction with Shenstone Drive at around 2.15pm on Wednesday.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said: “As he did this, she noticed that he was exposing himself.”

The offender, who was riding a black mountain bike with saddle bags on the side, biked off towards Macauley Road.

The offender is described as a white man, of a thin build, aged in his late ‘teens’ to early twenties, approximately 6 foot tall, had very short dark hair, had black thick-rimmed glasses and was wearing jeans and bright yellow boxers.

Police are appealing for witnesses. Call 101.
