A radio DJ said she believed she was flashed by Wayne Couzens 13 years before he killed Sarah Everard, but police “laughed in her face” when they reported it.

Magic FM DJ Emma Wilson, known as Emma B, waived her right to anonymity and claimed the officer exposed her to her in 2008 as she was walking around Greenwich, in South East London with her baby in a pram after dropping her. eldest child in school.

Wilson, 50, told the Daily Telegraph that a man shouted “hello” to her and when she turned around she saw a man she believed to be Couzens with his pants down, exposing himself. Couzens was a special constable for the Kent Police between December 2006 and September 2010.

The DJ said she was feeling “panicked”, ran to a nearby store and called 999. But she said police laughed when she disclosed what had happened.

“They laughed when I was describing the graphics and what it was doing, they thought it was especially funny,” she said. “The reason I’m saying something is that now a girl is dead. I have a daughter who is in college. As a mother, I think if someone didn’t say something, and it resulted in the death of my daughter, I couldn’t live with it.

Metropolitan Police are currently investigating the incident, according to the Telegraph.

Wilson said she was “very sure” the flasher was Couzens. “I really wouldn’t say anything out loud if I wasn’t quite sure, because it’s important and it’s serious, but as soon as I saw the pictures of him I said ‘This is him. ‘”, she said.

Couzens has been linked with three more reports of indecent exposure. A man has been charged with being naked from waist to toe in a car in Kent in 2015 and twice exposed himself at a McDonald’s in London days before the murder, details of cars linked to Couzens having been transmitted to the police in both cases.

Couzens, 48, was sentenced to life at the end of last month after a judge said his crimes were as serious as a terrorist atrocity because he abused his powers as a police officer to kidnap, rape and murder Everard.

The former Metropolitan Police officer used her warrant card and handcuffs to get the 33-year-old into her car as she drove home to south London during Covid lockdown restrictions in March.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “On Friday 8 October the Met received a complaint about an investigation into an alleged indecent assault incident in Greenwich in November 2008. The complaint is pending. ‘evaluation by officers of the professional standards.
