Police are appealing for information after a man exposed himself to a woman at the weekend in Dalkeith.

At around 2am on Sunday (April 29) the woman was walking along Lauder Road towards Mayfield when she noticed a grey car parked just past the junction of Westerkippielaw Drive.

A man inside the car spoke to her and then committed a lewd act. The woman ran off and the car was heard to drive away.

The man is described as white, in his late 20s, of average build and was wearing dark clothing.

PC Linzi Hogg of Bonnyrigg Police Station said: “The woman was left shaken after this experience and we are keen to trace the man responsible as soon as possible. I’d like to hear from anyone who recognises the description of the man and his car, or anyone who may have seen the vehicle in the area on Saturday night into Sunday morning.”

Contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference 851 of Sunday 29th April, or the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
