A witness appeal has been launched by Thames Valley Police following several reports of suspicious incidents in Princes Risborough.
The first incident happened at around 2.50am on the morning of Saturday 6th September 2014 when a woman in her thirties was walking with a friend in Wycombe Road. A man started following the women and speaking to them. He then exposed himself before the victim left the area and called the police.
The offender is described as white, slim, in his late teens to early twenties and was wearing a dark coloured hoody.
At around 3.45am, also on the morning of Saturday 6th September 2014, a member of staff at a home in Princes Risborough discovered an unknown man in a resident’s room. When she entered the room and told the man to leave he exited via the window and ran away. No one was injured in the incident.
The man is described as white, in his late teens, with dark hair.
Shortly after this a resident in Woodfield Road, Princes Risborough saw a man standing on some scaffolding near their property and called police as they thought he was acting suspiciously.
Police believe the incidents may be linked as the description of the offender is similar in each case.
