POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a van driver exposed himself to a 62-year-old woman.
The victim, from Harthill, was walking along Hard Lane, towards Harthill on Tuesday June 8 at around 1.40pm when the incident happened.
As the woman approached the brow of the hill that runs up from an electricity substation, a white Transit van with blue writing on the side pulled up on the grass verge just in front of her.
A man got out of the vehicle and moved to the rear of the van out of sight.
As the victim passed the van, she noticed the driver exposing himself in front of her.
The driver did not say anything to the woman or attempted to touch her.
The woman continued to walk past and after a moment or two when she eventually looked back at of the driver, he had returned to his van and driven away.
The driver is described as a white man, 25-35 years old with short dark hair. He is approximately 5ft 8in -to 6ft tall with a regular build and was wearing a blue polo shirt with short sleeves and dark trousers.
Police say there was a lot of traffic at the time of the incident and it is likely that someone either walking or driving along that part of the road saw what happened.
A 36-year-old man from Sheffield has been arrested in connection with incident and has been bailed pending further enquires.
