Students stalked by slow-moving driver in same Swansea area where flasher was spotted

Students say they have been stalked by a driver in a Swansea Road where a flasher exposed himself earlier this month.

Police went to Brynymor Road in Brynmill on Wednesday night (November 18), following a report at around 11pm of a yellow car pulling up next to a young woman and then being driving at walking pace, while the driver, said to be aged in his 40s or 50s, stared intimidatingly at the student.

The woman, who has not been named, said: “I stopped walking for a second and he then stopped his car while still staring and not taking his eyes off me.

“I panicked and ran home. Once I got home I looked back and he was no longer there. I couldn’t get his registration plate as I panicked and just ran and didn’t look back”.

Police said another woman had reported a similar experience in the same area. And the incident was on the same road where a woman reported a man exposing himself to her in the late afternoon of Sunday, November 8.

South Wales Police said they were investigating the possibility the November 8 incident may be linked to another two indecent exposure cases on nearby Gower Road.

The first was at about 3pm on Tuesday, October 20, and the second at about 4pm on Wednesday, October 21.

A spokesman for South Wales Police said the latest incidents were not being linked to the reports of indecent exposure reported earlier this month, but added: “We received two reports of a suspicious vehicle in the Brynmill area.

“The first report referred to a small yellow car slowing up next to a woman at about 11pm on Brynmill Lane last night.

“We have also today had a report of a similar incident which happened on Tuesday evening, November 17, at about 7.45pm in Langland Terrace.

“Enquiries are continuing along with our regular patrols in the area.

“We are keen to speak to anyone who may have been driving a small yellow vehicle in the area at these times”.
