Reported by social media posts on Monday 18 September 2017
Reports have come to our attention, through social media posts, of two incidents in the West Bromwich area near George Salter Academy.One incident reports a teenage female walking past the school at approximately 4.40pm, when she noticed a green Ford Focus car in a parking bay outside the school on Dudley Street. The car was parked with the engine running and hazard warning lights on. As she walked past the car, the male driver caught her attention. He appeared to be naked from the waist down. Maintaining eye contact with her, the man proceeded to commit an indecent act. A new post was made on social media later that day to advise that the same car was seen at approximately 7pm that evening, parked in the same location. The car drove away as soon as an attempt was made to take a photograph.Social media posts indicate that a photograph has been taken of the car and the registration number, and details have been passed to the police.
