AN APPEAL has been launched by Isle of Wight police after a man indecently exposed himself to a woman as she was walking her dog.
A police spokeswoman said the incident took place at about 3.45pm last Wednesday (26) in Binstead.
She said: "He passed a man who was walking a Jack Russell dog on the other side of Binsted Lodge Road by the triangular grassy area bordering Verwood Drive. As they passed each other she heard him whistle, and then he indecently exposed himself to her."
