Gardaí investigating a possible incident of exposure in Portlaoise are treating the report cautiously.

Laois Offaly Division confirmed that they received a call at about 3.30pm on Tuesday, September 25 from a member of the public.

An individual was seen acting suspiciously near a newly opened fitness centre near the Portlaoise Retail Park just off the Timahoe Road. Several primary schools are located in the vicinity.

A witness reported seeing a male appearing to expose himself near bushes.

While gardaí say they are taking the matter seriously and investigating, they have yet to confirm that it was a case of exposure. They say they are treating the report cautiously as there have been no other reports at this time.
