A MAN wearing a balaclava flashed a woman and made lewd gestures at her near a footbridge.

He indecently exposed himself to a woman walking through the valley in Sholing yesterday.

The 23-year-old woman entered the valley from Banbury Avenue at 12.45pm on Tuesday when she saw two men near a footbridge.

One man exposed himself to her and made lewd gestures towards her.

Both men were wearing balaclavas and navy coloured tops and trousers.

PC Hayley Goodsell from Southampton East Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “Did you see anyone matching this description or acting suspiciously in the Sholing area yesterday?

"These men were wearing balaclavas and this incident happened in the middle of the day, I believe someone will know who they are.

"Please get in contact."

Police are asking anyone with information to call 101.
