GIRLS have been targeted by a man indecently exposing himself on several occasions.

 The man, believed to be in his 40s and wearing a black hoodie, has exposed himself three times – all in the Pallion area in the space of 24 hours.

 The man did not try and touch the girls during any of the incidents.

 The first incident happened on Monday at 9.40pm in Neville Road and then just 35 minutes later a second incident was reported at 10.15pm in Pallion New Road.

 Police also received a third report on Tuesday of a similar type of incident.

 Neighbourhood Inspector Dave Pickett is leading the investigation.

 He said: “As far as we’re aware the man has not tried to touch any of the girls but it’s still very worrying behaviour and we are aware the community are very concerned.”

 If anyone has any information they should contact Northumbria police on 101 ext. 69191 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 500111.
