POLICE have appealed for help to catch a man who exposed himself to a woman in a York car park.

The man ‘exposed his genitals’ to the woman – who was on her own – in the Nunnery Lane car park at about 6.30pm on Friday.

Police say the woman was left ‘extremely shaken’ and have described it as a ‘concerning’ incident.

Now they have appealed for anyone with information about who the man is to come forward – including a second man who was with him at the time.
