Solihull Editorial 2nd Mar, 2021   0

OFFICERS investigating a series of indecent exposures in Solihull and Birmingham have made a second arrest.

A 46-year-old man, from Hodge Hill, Birmingham, was arrested on Monday evening, March 1, in Babbs Mill Park and remains in police custody on suspicion of indecent exposure.

Police were alerted after a resident spotted the man in the park.

“Thanks to their call we attended and swiftly arrested the person in question,” said a West Midlands Police spokeperson.




“A man who was previously arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure has been eliminated from the enquiry.

“The 28-year-old will face no further police action.


“The community response to our appeal and the ongoing investigation has been fantastic.

“Both arrests have been made with the help of the local community and everyone who has contacted us with information.

“We know that this type of crime can also go unreported, with victims feeling shocked, upset or embarrassed by what has happened. “However, these are serious crimes. We need to ensure that we have as much information as possible on every incident that has taken place.

“Although the new arrest is a positive step forward our investigation continues.

“We’d like to encourage everyone to remain vigilant and if you have information and haven’t yet been in touch, please call us as soon as possible.”

Police can be contacted via live chat at www.west-midlands.police.uk 8am − midnight, or on 101 anytime. To remain 100 per cent anonymous Crimestoppers can be called on 0800 555 111.
