Police are appealing for information after a ‘suspicious man’ approached a young woman waiting for a bus by the mini-roundabout in Newton Poppleford to ask for directions.

PC Mark Jones said officers would like to speak to the man in relation to another incident in Exmouth on the same day, August 19, where a male allegedly approached two young girls and exposed himself.

The person in question is described as being white, aged in his late 20s to 30s, with dirty, mousy-coloured hair and was wearing an all-blue tracksuit.

PC Jones said it is possible he was driving a black Range Rover-type vehicle with tinted glass in the rear windows.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and quote crime reference CR/058083/15.
