Fulston Manor pupils targeted by flasher in Castle Road, Murston, Sittingbourne

27 March 2014

A mum is warning other parents to be on their guard after a man exposed himself to her daughter.
 
The 11-year-old, who we have agreed not to name, was walking to school with her friend when the incident happened between Castle Road and Tonge Road, Murston, at about 8am on Wednesday.
 
Shocked, the pair carried on walking to Fulston Manor where they alerted staff who then contacted their parents and informed police.

The man is described as being about 35, bald with puffy eyes and a brown mole on his face by his right ear.  
 
He was wearing a black top with gold writing on it, black jog bottoms and white trainers.
 
Kolene Tong, 34, from Murston, said: “She was walking along looking at pictures on her friend’s phone when the man approached from Tonge Road. 
 
“He saw them and my daughter said he gave them a dirty look. The next thing he lifted his private parts over the top of his jogging bottoms and carried on walking past them. 
 
“She said she was very scared because of the way he was looking at her and couldn’t understand why he did it.
 
"She was frightened because she knows when a man does something like that it’s not right. What possess someone to do that? It’s sick.
 
Police are investigating the incident

“Her dad picked her up from school that night and she’s now walking in with her older sister. They’ve been told they must stay together.
 
“Fulston Manor called an assembly and held talks in class so they took the right steps to make the children aware and I understand text messages were sent out to parents by nearby schools.”
 
Officers are investigating the matter and inquiries are ongoing. A police spokesman said it was too early to say if it was linked to two other cases where two girls were approached by a man while on their own.
 
The first was in an alleyway behind Gadby Road, Sittingbourne, on Friday, February 14, at 3.40pm. The other was in the Woolett Road area on February 25 at 8.15am.
