A SEARCH is on for a flasher who exposed himself near a primary school.
The incident took place in an alleyway from Knowle Lane towards Linthorpe Gardens, Buckley, on Monday afternoon.
The tracksuited man, who is thought to be in his 20s, exposed himself to a young female in the alley, a short distance from Mountain Lane Primary School, Buckley.
Parents at the school have been forwarded an email from the school, issued by the Neighbourhood Watch OWL alert scheme, as police appeal for witnesses to come forward.
A spokesman for OWL said: “On February 18 at about 3.50pm a male has exposed himself to a young female in the Buckley area.
“The incident has occurred near the alleyway off Knowle Lane leading to Linthorpe Gardens.
“The male is described as wearing a grey tracksuit with a grey hooded top which appeared to have an Adidas motif on it.
“The male had stubble on his face and was described as looking young, possibly 20s.”
The incident has shocked parents at the primary school.
One mother, who did not wish to be named, said: “We are grateful to the school for making us aware of this.
“The last thing you want to take place near a school is someone exposing themselves. We hope this never happens again.
“We would not want any children to have to see it.”
It is understood the incident was not witnessed by children from the primary school.
Buckley Pentrobin councillor Mike Peers, chairman of governors at Mountain Lane Primary School, said: “I have been made aware of this incident and I believe the school has been very co-operative with police and CCTV footage has been looked at.
“The school has done everything it can to alert parents, ensuring they are vigilant about making sure the children are safe and supervised.
“This is a very rare occurrence but it is very serious. We do not want anything like this happening again.”
Sgt Andy Massey said: “North Wales Police encourage members of the public to be vigilant given the description of this person.
“The local neighbourhood police teams are fully aware and there will be directed high profile patrols in the locality. Enquiries are continuing into this matter and the local police are working closely with Mountain Lane School.”
