Police would like to speak with this man Met Police

Police are hunting for a man suspected of repeatedly defecating in the streets of London.

The suspect, believed to be aged in his mid-50s, is thought to have dropped his trousers in public on numerous occasions, before defecating and leaving the scene.

The Met Police has released an image of a man they would like to speak with following one defecation incident in Eastlands Crescent, Dulwich, at around 5.15pm on Thursday, 16 February.

The suspect is described as a white male, aged in his mid-50s, around 5ft 8ins tall with a medium build. At the time of the incident he was wearing jeans and a grey jumper.

"Police believe that this is not the first time the suspect may have done this; and believe there are other similar cases which have not been reported to police," a police spokesman added. "Officers are asking for anyone who has witnessed a similar incident to report it to police."

The alleged perpetrator faces charges of outraging public decency, officers added.
