Police hunt 'lady flasher' accused of exposing herself to young children in car park
Alleged the woman unzipped her black three-quarter length jacket revealing her naked body to the mother and her four children, aged 13, 12, 10, and four
West Midlands Police have released photographs of a woman suspected of exposing herself to a car full of young children outside a supermarket.
The images, which were taken by the children's shocked 33-year-old mother, show the woman shortly after the incident in the Asda supermarket car park in Cape Hill, Smethwick.
According to reports the woman in the photographs allegedly approached the mother and children in the car park before becoming 'argumentative'.
It is alleged she then unzipped her black three-quarter length jacket revealing her naked body to the mother and her four children, aged 13, 12, 10, and four.
Sgt James Proffitt from West Midlands Police said it was the first time they had encountered an alleged "lady flasher".
"The crime is being treated as a serious sexual offence, which had left the children's mother shocked," he said. The suspect is described as black and in her late 20s.
Sgt Proffitt, told the BBC: "The woman had no regard for the young children who were exposed to this kind of behaviour.
"This is a very serious crime and we would appeal to anyone who may know this woman to call us.
"Why she did this still remains unclear and this is now an opportunity for her to contact us and explain."
The incident happened at about 20:00 BST in the Asda supermarket car park in Cape Hill on 20 July.
