A MAN with his trousers around his ankles confronted a woman in a Herefordshire park after pursuing her around woods.

Her ordeal at Queenswood Country Park, Dinmore, began at 10.30am on September 9, when the woman drove into the woodland car park followed by the man in an old-style blue car.

She began walking her dog to find the man behind her. He left her trail when she made off towards a group of people, but after about 25 minutes, when she got back to her car, he was in his car, which he had parked by hers.

He got out with his trousers round his ankles and exposed himself. As she ran for help he drove away.

The man is described as white, aged in his mid to late 40s and about 5ft 8ins to 5ft 9ins tall, of medium to stocky build, with short, dark brown hair. He was clean-shaven and wore a dark coloured T-shirt with dark coloured trousers. He had a local accent.

Queenswood head ranger, Paul Tomkins, said it was an isolated incident: "I have been here 25 years and it's the first time anything like this has happened. We want to reassure people it's an isolated case and staff will be vigilant."

Police would like to hear from anyone who may have seen the man or his car, which is a small, pale to mid blue family car with a short, square boot. Anyone with information contact PC Adele Loney on 08457 444888 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
