POLICE are investigating claims a man has been exposing himself in an Accrington street.

The man is also reported to have urinated outside one resident’s home, in Primrose Street.

One man said his partner had been targeted by the man. He said: “This gent has made our lives hell. He has exposed himself to me, and my neighbours, and my partner, who has also been followed home.

“We don’t know where he lives. From what I’ve heard, he walks about all over Accrington and Blackburn.

“If we exposed ourselves and urinated in the street, we would get locked up.

“Why he should get away with it I don’t know.”

A police spokeswoman confirmed they were investigating. She said: “We received a call just after 1pm on Thursday, reporting a man urinating outside a property in Primrose Street in Accrington.

“The man was described as being Asian, and it was also reported that he once exposed himself.”
