Witness appeal after indecent exposure in Beaminster in Dorset
Dorset Police Officers are appealing for anyone with information to come forward after a man indecently exposed himself in Beaminster.
The incident occurred at around 12.20pm on Wednesday 16 August 2023 as the victim was walking near to Woodswater Lane.
It is reported that a man driving a white van smiled at the victim, before saying something out of his window.

“I am appealing to anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area, or recognises the man from the description given, to please come forward.
“Also, I am keen to speak to anyone who may have been approached in a similar way recently and may have information to assist my enquiries.”
