A teenage boy allegedly exposed himself to a girl who was out walking her dog in Bridport.

Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward following the indecent exposure incident.

The exposure took place shortly before 5pm on Friday, November 24, as the victim, a teenage girl, was walking her dog in Pymore Road close to the junction with Dodhams Lane.

It is reported that a male teenager attempted to get the victim’s attention before indecently exposing himself. The victim managed to quickly leave the area.

The suspect is described as aged in his mid to late teens, of slim build with short curly black hair and was wearing mostly dark-coloured clothing.

Police Constable Tim Sturgess, of Bridport police, said: “Officers attended and carried out searches of the area, but the offender was not located.

“This was understandably a very frightening incident for the victim, and we are carrying out numerous enquiries to identify the suspect.

“I am appealing to anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area, or has relevant information to assist my investigation, to please get in touch.”
