Police hunt York flasher

PoliceYork police are asking for the public help after a case of indecent exposure in the city.

It happened at around 2.15pm on Wednesday 7 November 2012, on Main Street, Copmanthorpe, as a 17-year-old girl was walking away from Top Lane. A small silver car pulled up next to her. The man driving the car, who was the only occupant of the vehicle, wound the passenger window down, before making a lewd comment and exposing himself. He then drove off heading towards Top Lane.

The suspect is described as a white man aged in his mid-20s. At the time he was wearing a woollen hat pulled down over his hair and ears, a long sleeved zip-up grey hooded top and blue jeans.

The only description of his vehicle is that it is a small silver car.

PC Martin Scott, of York Safer Neighbourhood Team, said:

This type of behaviour is utterly disgraceful and the man should be deeply ashamed of himself.

If you can help to identify this man I ask that you contact the police as a matter of urgency.

I would also like to speak to anyone who may have been approached by this man or saw a car matching the description of his vehicle acting suspiciously to come forward straight away.

Anyone who can help the police with their enquiries is asked to contact York police on 101, press option 2 and ask for Martin Scott. Alternatively information can be emailed to

Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 11 quoting reference number 12120188270.
