Police are investigating an incident where a man exposed himself to a group on young children in a Co Armagh play park.

On Monday afternoon, police received a report of a man indecently exposing himself to young children in a play park on the Glen Road in Keady.

He was described as being 40-50 years old.

The incident happened in broad daylight.

Sinn Fein councillor Darren McNally said: “After speaking to one of the parents we feel it’s important that people are made aware of the incident in the hope that it serves as a timely reminder to all us parents and the local community to always be vigilant even in public areas with our kids.”

“I would like to assure people that the PSNI are investigating the matter and that council have been made aware as owners of the facility.”

He added: “Keady play park is a lovely quiet area were parents can enjoy some time with their kids, the community is extremely angry that he has targeted young children in this way.

“As a parent myself, this is especially disturbing and I will work closely with the community, council and PSNI to ensure that the area is safe for all our children.
