Police are hunting a man who indecently exposed himself to the same woman twice on a York cycle path.

The two incidents took place on the path off University Road leading to Heslington Road, at 3pm on Tuesday 3 November and again at around 2pm yesterday (Tuesday, 10 November).

The male suspect was seen hiding behind parked cars.

He is described as:

  • Asian
