POLICE are hunting for a man who is believed to have exposed himself to two women in two days.

The man first struck as a 28-year-old woman was walking her dog along the B8046 in Mid Calder at about 6.50am one day last week. The woman left the area and reported the matter to the police.

The suspect is described as white, late 20s to early 30s, 6ft with short dark hair and dark-rimmed glasses. He spoke with a foreign accent but had good English.

A separate incident was then reported to police when a 21-year-old was waiting in her vehicle at the temporary traffic lights in Murieston Road East in Livingston over the weekend.

She saw a man emerge from the nearby wooded area and walk closer to her car before exposing himself.

Detective Constable Iain Duncan from Livingston CID said: “At this time we are investigating whether both of these crimes are linked and so anyone who can assist with our inquiries is asked to come forward.

“Neither victim was harmed or threatened during either incidents, but we treat all crimes of indecency very seriously.”
