A SOUTHAMPTON man has been found guilty of indecent exposure after he exposed himself to two women last year.

A court heard how Robert Oakley, 51, of Lyon Street had exposed himself on two occasions to lone women in January 2020.

On January 25 at 3.20, Oakley exposed himself to a 33-year-old woman who was walking alone with her dogs along Frog Lane in Fordingbridge.

Only three days later, he then visited the same spot again and between 12:30pm and 1pm, revealed himself to another woman, aged 34.

After a three day trial at Southampton Crown Court, Oakley was found guilty of two counts of indecent exposure.

He is now due to be sentenced on May 11.

PC Sarah Taylor said: “We would like to thank those women who came forward and told us what happened to them. Being subjected to something like this can be very distressing and shocking, sometimes leaving a victim unsure of what to do or how to report this kind of thing to us.

“We absolutely want to receive your call and bring offenders like Oakley to justice. If it’s happening now, always call 999.

“These incidents rightly concerned the community in Fordingbridge at the time and we’re pleased to be able to say now that we were able to put a stop to this, with the community’s help.”
