Police appeal following indecent exposure in Lancaster

Police are appealing for information following an incident of indecent exposure in Lancaster and have released an Evofit.

The incident happened on Saturday 11th August at around 7.15pm on Bowerham Road close to the city centre.

The victim, a 21-year-old local woman, was walking down the road when a car approached her and asked her for directions to Bell Street. When she looked into the car, the man had his genitals exposed and was touching himself inappropriately.

PC Rebecca Rooke from Lancaster Police said, “I would appeal to anyone who saw the incident or who was in the area at the time and may have witnessed something to come forward and contact the police.

“I would also ask people to look at the Evofit and see if they recognise the man and if they do then they need to make contact with us.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Lancaster Police on 101.

People with information can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
