Police are appealing for witnesses after a flasher exposed himself to a woman in St Albans last week.
The incident happened at around 10.30pm on Wednesday, July 16 in Sandpit Lane near the Clarence Road junction.
The woman, in her 20s, was walking along the road from the direction of the town centre when a man in front of her turned around and indecently exposed himself.
He spoke to her before she crossed the road to get away from him and then he turned around again and continued away on foot. He made no attempt to follow the woman.
The man is described as white, aged between 30 and 40, and of medium build. He had dark brown hair which was spiked with a gel-like product and was wearing a dark coloured t-shirt with a white or light-coloured motif centred on the front of it.
PC James Irlen is investigating and said: “The victim has been left understandably shaken by what happened and we are appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident to make contact with police.
“It is believed there were a number of people in the road directly before and after the incident and so I would urge any such people, who remember seeing someone acting unusually or suspiciously, to contact me straight away. If you believe you know the identity of the man, please call me.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Herts police on the non-emergency number 101 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
