Wiltshire Police have released an e-fit image of a man they want to speak to after an indecent exposure incident in Swindon.
The incident happened near Redpost Drive last month when a woman who was running on a footpath, ran past a man who was indecently exposing himself close to the Mannington roundabout.
The man is described as an Asian male with dark hair and a short beard.
Anybody with any information is urged to call 101 or Crimestoppers.
Police have released this CCTV image after a 15 year old girl was approached by a man offering modelling work in Swindon.
She was approached on 1st May around 6.20pm in the Farnsby Street/Canal Walk area.
The girl refused to go with him as she was suspicious about his motives.
He is described as Indian with an Indian accent, wearing a black leather jacket, cream or pale green trousers.
He had short black hair and is aged between 30 and 40.
The young lady in was very sensible and reported the incident to us, we are conducting enquiries and need to speak to the man regarding his actions. If you recognise this man, have any information about him or this incident please call us."

“Searches are being conducted in the gardens and garages of two properties in Broad Street over this coming week.
“Whilst we do not have plans, at this stage, to search inside the properties there will be some disruption to the occupants. I would like to make it clear that those living at the addresses have no involvement in the investigation and we thank them for their understanding and patience.
“Although we are unable to comment on the nature of our enquiries, we can say that we are acting on intelligence received.”
“We understand that this activity may cause concern for the local community and residents can expect to see a police cordon in place within the alleyways in Broad Street for the next five days. This should not impact upon other local residents. Officers will continue to patrol the vicinity and will be available for anyone who has any concerns relating to the searches.”
