A man indecently exposed himself to a teenager in Greenshields Road, Bedford, on Saturday, June 28.
The incident happened at approximately 1.10am after the 16-year-old victim had noticed a man in a van following her along the road.
The man asked the girl for directions and asked her to ‘take a look’ as she looked into the van the driver exposed himself.
The offender is described as a white man, in his mid 30s, with a slim build and local accent driving a silver Vauxhall Astra van.
PC Val Bale, investigating, is keen to trace anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone who has been subjected to similar behaviour recently.
PC Bale said: “The victim has been made to feel very scared by the event and we need members of the public to help trace this man to ensure we can put a stop to his behaviour.”
