Exposing the dark side of flashers


Only 21 cases of flashers were recorded nationwide over the past five years but the real number remains unseen as many cases go unreported. Over the past five years, only 21 cases of flashing were reported to the police, says the Bukit Aman Sexual, Women and Child Investigation Division assistant principle director. This number is just the tip of the iceberg. She says a reason for the low number of reported cases is because many victims do not feel that it is necessary to make a report. However, flashing is no laughing matter as it can cause emotional distress and, in some cases, lead to sexual assault. ACP Ong urges victims to lodge police reports because while most flashers merely expose themselves, there have been cases where the ­flashers went on to harass their victims for ­sexual favours or molest them. Contrary to ­popular belief, flashers prefer to expose themselves at open public places as opposed to isolated areas. Flashers can escape easily by blending in with the crowd after exposing themselves. Even if you can’t remember how the perpetrator looks like, inform the police so that we can patrol the area and warn others. Source: http://bit.ly/1D4Swm1
