BAY FLASHER ALERT! Pervert on the loose in Sydney targeting women going for a jog

A male pervert with a “unique set of front teeth” is wanted by police after allegedly indecently assaulting at least three young women exercising along Sydney’s famous Bay Run in the city’s inner-west over the past month.

There are now reports more women may have been targeted by the man but police have yet been unable to publicly confirm whether those incidents may be linked to the same offender.

The first known incident that police are aware of involved a 27-year-old woman as she was returning to her car on Glover Street at Lilyfield at about 9.30pm on January 31. After completing her nightly jog, she was approached by the man before he exposed himself.

Just a couple of days later at 9.30am in the morning, it is believed the same man – this time riding a yellow bicycle – approached another 27-year-old woman on a track between the Le Montage reception centre and the Leichhardt Rowing Club.

After allegedly exposing himself, the man dumped the bike and ran off as the woman sought help from a passer-by.

In the last reported incident, the man approached yet another 27-year-old woman on February 17 near the Glover Street Sports Ground, which is situated nearby the track where the second incident took place.

At  a press conference held this week, NSW Police Inspector Ned Gligorevic, said the man had acted in a similar behaviour when confronting his female victims.

“They’ve all indicated he’s approached them, then asked for sexual favours and then exposed himself,” Inspector Gligorevic told reporters today.

“He’s grabbing his genitalia and then exposing himself.”

The wanted man is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged between 20 and 30, about 180cm tall, with short, cropped hair and brown eyes.

In the image provided by police to the media, the man is seen to have a sleeve tattoo on his left arm and is wearing a singlet and Muay Thai kickboxing shorts.

However, its his ‘fang-like’ teeth which may help locate the man.

“The most important thing with this offender is that he has very prominent teeth, our victims have all indicated that,” Inspector Gligorevic said. “Apparently the incisors are sharp, so you’re looking at a rather unique set of front teeth.”

A NSW police spokesperson has told True Crime News Weekly they are very interested in speaking with anyone who may have seen the man in the image or who may have been approached by the man in recent weeks and months.

“We would urge local residents contact investigators immediately … to allow them to advance the inquiry,” a police spokesperson said.
