A PERVERT who flashed at a teenage girl on a South Yorkshire bus is on a police wanted list.

Officers have released this image of the suspect who distressed the girl as she made her way to The Dome leisure centre in Doncaster.

They are appealing for information about the indecent exposure which happened on the top deck of a bus on the bus corridor near Booth Avenue on Saturday January 29 at around 7pm.

A 13-year-old local girl was on the bus with friends travelling towards the Dome for a night out.

As the girl went to get off the bus at the Dome stop, she saw a man sitting on the bus had exposed himself and was gesturing towards her.

Police are trying to trace this man and have released an image from the bus company’s CCTV system.

Anybody who thinks they recognise the man from the image is asked to contact the crime management unit in Doncaster on 01302 385135 quoting crime number A/10278/2011 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

It is the second time teenagers attending The Dome have been targeted by sexual predators in the past two months.

A boy and girl, aged 13 and 12, were swimming underwater in the complex’s Lagoons pool when a man standing near them committed an indecent act and their parents informed staff.

Checks on security camera footage provided evidence of what he had been doing in the water and it was handed over to police.

At the time police issued a picture of the suspect, who was in his 50s with a beard, they said it was an isolated incident and should not deter people from visiting the sports centre.
