A 66-year-old man has been released with no further action after an investigation into an indecent exposure concluded that the incidents were not as first reported.
Between 8am on Monday, September 21, and 12.50pm on Tuesday, September 22, a man was reported to have been seen inside a house near a school in Market Road, exposing himself.
The man was swiftly arrested and an investigation into the incidents commenced.
The investigation concluded however that no offences had occurred and that the incidents were not as first reported.
As a result, no further action will be taken against the 66-year-old man.
Det Con Scott Mackenzie, said: “This was a thorough investigation which involved speaking to a number of witnesses as well as the seizure and examination of a quantity of this man’s digital devices.
“As a result, we were able to conclude that this was not a case of indecent exposure and that there was nothing at all on the man’s digital devices that caused us any concern.
“We have informed the parents and teachers at the nearby school as they were rightly concerned about these incidents, and they are satisfied with the conclusion of our investigation.
“Northamptonshire Police takes incidents of this nature very seriously and I hope the diligence that went into this investigation demonstrates that, though thankfully on this occasion it turned out not to be as first reported.”
