Police are appealing to the public to locate a man who exposed himself to a woman near downtown Shelbyville Monday afternoon.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Bernice Napier said the incident occurred at around 3 p.m. near Washington and Alton streets.

Napier said that when they responded to the call, the woman said the man followed her down Washington Street then got out of his car near Alton Road and exposed his genitals to her.

The man is described as a white male 5-feet, 11-inches to 6-feet, 3-inches tall, with a thin build, with black hair and a black beard. He was driving a red Ford Focus passenger car.

Napier said patrols would be increased in the area by both KSP and Shelbyville Police.

If anyone has any information, they are asked to contact KSP at 502-227-2221 or 800-222-5555 and ask for Trooper Eddie Whitworth.
