A NAKED man was caught performing a sex act in a park, by a primary school.

The pervert, seen fully naked by a walker, was caught in Chalvedon Park, less than 200 metres from Northlands Infant School and Nursery.

The woman, who saw the man last Thursday evening, described him as being in his 50s.

The 23-year-old said: “He was just standing there fully naked.

“I was in compete shock. I’m still a bit shaken up now to be honest.

“It is absolutely disgusting.

“If I was a 13-year-old, I think I would have cried.

“I was walking to my mum’s and I was on the phone to my partner. He told me to immediately call the police.

“He coughed quietly but I ignored it. He then coughed loud enough so I turned around.

“He looked just under six foot, and was white British.

“A few people have told me since that he has been seen there a few times there now.”

The victim who told the Echo police had been unable to find the man when they arrived, also took to social media to warn others about the man.

She posted: “Please anyone with children who are hanging around on the streets please be aware and be careful.

“Call the police if you see him again.”

Essex Police were contacted for a statement.

A member of staff at Northlands Infant School and Nursery stated that nothing on the matter had been reported to them. They also said that they were not aware of any previous incidents nearby.

A spokesman from Essex Police urged anyone with information to come forward. He said: “We were called at about 6.55pm on Thursday, January 23, with reports of a man acting inappropriately in Northlands Park, Basildon.

“A woman reported how the man had left the scene before we attended and searched the area without success.”
