Jordbodalen, a park district of Helsingborg in southern Sweden, has been the setting for a series of sexual harassment incidents over the past few weeks. Several children ran home on Tuesday and reported to their parents that a man, between ages 50 and 60, had harassed them.
"We are aware of three to four cases of sexual harassment in Jordbodalen the past week," police spokeswoman Eva-Lotta Hermansson-Truedsson told local paper Helsingborgs Dagbladet.
The same day another girl in the area was harassed and allegedly chased by a flasher who was apparently about 50 years old. It is unclear if it was the same man.
A week prior a 20-year-old woman also reported a younger man who stood masturbating on a jogging path in the area.
Police have stated that they will be increasing their presence in the area, both in uniform and undercover.
In May a teenage flasher sent images of his genitals to classmates via a fake Facebook account - but was found by police due to the distinctive wallpaper in the background.
