Hampshire police have recently been alerted to a man seen committing indecent acts to passers by in Sholing, between the dates of August and November.
The man, believed to be white in his late teens, of slim build and with brown hair, was seen by 3 women and a 14 year old boy between the times of 3.20pm to 5.55pm committing the act.
At one point the man continued to stare at a woman who came close to the bench he was sat on as she came near to retrieve her dog.
The times recorded for these sightings raise the question why the areas were not better policed at times in the afternoon when children and families would undoubtedly be in the park.
The Hampshire Constabulary have responded to four cases in which each time the man has been seen committing the act, but there are believed to be many more suspicious cases of the same nature.
Those more recently effected by the case could have been prevented if police had begun to patrol the area directly after the first call.
The two reported areas the man has been frequently seen are Millers Pond and Sholing Valley.
Southampton police are currently appealing for anyone else with information on the case to come forward and contact PC Rachel Gallimore at the Public Protection Unit at Shirley Police Station on the number 101.
