THREE teenage girls have been left ‘scared’ after a man took down his trousers and flashed at them, while they were walking home from school.
They were heading along the lane that connects the underpass near Sainsbury’s with Lisle Road in Worle, when they were approached by a man, aged 35-40 years old.
He exposed himself but the girls managed to run home to safety.
A mother of one of the girls, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said she wants to warn other parents following the incident which happened at about 4.15pm on May 22.
She said: “My daughter came home from school, having stayed on a bit late. Then her and her friends came in and said ‘mum I’ve got something to tell you’.
“She said this guy flashed at them. Initially I wanted to go out in my car and find this guy but thought calling the police was the more sensible option.
“He had approached them in a lane in Worle and had lowered his trousers down and then they ran.
“They are only teenage girls and it scared them quite a bit.
“A lot of kids hang around that area and so I want to warn people. I don’t want it to happen to another girl or elderly person.”
The man was bald or had a shaved head and wore a grey suit at the time. According to one of the girls, he was about 5ft 4ins or fractionally taller.
An Avon and Somerset Constabulary spokesman confirmed officers are looking into an alleged incident where a man exposed himself.
She said: “Anyone who was in the area at the time is asked to call the police on 101 and quote reference number 52274/14.”
