A FLASHER indecently exposed himself to three teenage girls last week.

The incident happened last Thursday (June 18) along the Harpenden Road, St Albans, near to the old fire station.

The girls were walking towards Harpenden when the man exposed himself and followed them along the path for a short while, before making off in an unknown direction.

He was described as a white man in his 30s between 5ft 10ins and 6ft tall, of medium build with a bloated stomach. He is believed to have short brown hair and slight stubble on his face, and was wearing a blue t-shirt with a white design on the front, three quarter length green cargo shorts and sandy coloured shoes or sandals.

Sergeant Matt Phillips, investigating, said: "I am keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and saw the incident take place or if anyone recognises the man described."

Anyone with information should contact the non-emergency number on 0845 3300222 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
