Police have released images of a man they wish to speak to after an incident in Cheltenham last week where a person exposed himself in front of a child and his mother.

Investigators have been told that a woman took her two-year-old boy to the Stanley Avenue Reserve to play on Thursday, 18 February.

About 10am she saw a man standing at the park gate watching her son on the slide.

He had his penis exposed and was masturbating.

The man then ran down a nearby alleyway which is also a thoroughfare through to Hoffman Street from the park.

The woman and her son were physically uninjured during the incident.

Detectives from Moorabbin Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team (SOCIT) are investigating the incident.

They have released images from nearby CCTV and a facial composite image of a man they wish to speak to.

He is described as being about 40-55 years old, perceived to be of Southern European appearance, tall with a solid build, short dark brown hair and facial hair on his chin.

At the time of the incident he was wearing a long sleeved collared top.

Police are keen to speak to anyone who recognises the man or has information about the incident.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report to www.crimestoppersvic.com.au

  • What a creep!! I hope he’s caught and quickly!! Pretty sad when you can’t even take your children to the park without such an incident


  • this behaviour gone on foryears but totally not acceptable, what he does in own home is his right. ut to behave in public in such a manner is perverted and so is he. Makes me angry. Harsh words for punishale offence


  • what the hell makes people do this stuff?


  • This is revolting. I hope he doesnt escalate.


  • YUCK! I hope they catch this sicko!!


  • I lived and worked near a section of the River Torrens where there is a bikeway.
    Some of the staff use to walk along there at lunch time until this sort of thing happened a few times, including to a cyclist. Some undercover police officers dressed up in very casual civvies and ordinary bicycle helmets a few times and rode along there quite a few times but they never caught the culprit/s. The……. must have been desperate as it happened in freezing cold weather too. Some were able to laugh at the guy as suggestged by the Police so he wouldn’t have got the reaction he expected. The girls always walked in groups. At one stage some of our guys walked a few metres behind in hopes of either making a citizen’s arrest (it was arranged with the Police) or at least being able to give a full description of the…….


  • What rock are all these sickos crawling out from?


  • This is disgusting. Clearly this man has a problem. I hope he is located and charged appropriately.


  • How disgusting, I hope they find him asap. I’m glad the mum and her child are ok.


  • This is so disgusting! The facial composite image should help finding him.


  • So inappropriate! I hope they find him. Good on the mum for informing authorities and not just “turning a blind eye”.


  • How shocking, I hope they catch this perve. Poor mother and son.


  • Do not like it


  • What’s wrong with these people? I hope they catch him before he offends again.
