A MAN indecently exposed himself to a teenage girl in Whitworth.

The 15-year-old girl was walking along Market Street close to the civic hall at around 9.30pm on Friday.

She noticed a man stood on the other side of the road who exposed himself and made comments towards her.

The offender is described as being a white man, in his late twenties to early thirties, around 5’ 8” tall with a stocky build.

He was wearing a grey hooded-top with a black motif across the back, and dark jogging bottoms.

Detective Constable Neil Scholes from Rossendale CID said, “I would appeal to anyone who witnessed the incident or who recognises the description of the man to come forward and contact police.

“Although not physically hurt, the victim has been left shaken following her ordeal.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Rossendale CID on 01706 237346 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
