A flasher at a Coromandel beach has been nabbed after police
posed as holidaymakers.
Sergeant Brendon Bland of the Cooks Beach Public Safety Team
said the two young women were approached by a man who exposed
himself near Lonely Beach on Sunday.
Mr Bland said prompt, accurate information provided by the
two victims helped police arrest a man yesterday.
"Police were able to place staff in the area looking like
innocent holidaymakers enjoying the summer at the beach
yesterday," Mr Bland said.
"Subsequently we apprehended a 41-year-old local man who we
are now speaking to in relation to this and a number of
similar historic complaints."
Anyone with information on similar types of offending should
contact the Whitianga Police on (07) 858 6200.
