Police in York are investigating a disturbing incident in which a fat naked man masturbated in front of a female student.

The incident occurred at 1.15pm on Sunday (November 19) as the 20-year-old woman was walking alone on Windmill Lane onto the woodland cycle path in the direction of Hull Road.

She was confronted by the man who stood in front of her. He was bare-chested and had his trousers pulled down around his ankles.

He then performed the sex act on himself. The man remained in the same location for around five minutes before making off.

The woman quickly walked away and reported the incident to the police.

Stepped up patrols

Enquiries are ongoing to locate the man, including a trawl of CCTV covering the area.

Police patrols have been stepped up in the area to provide public reassurance while the investigation continues.

The suspect is described as

  • white
  • with a very pale complexion
  • aged between 35 and 45
  • around 5ft 10in tall
  • with a fat build.

He has very little chest or pubic hair and no obvious tattoos or scars.
