POLICE are seeking the identity of a man they believe committed an “indecent act” while in a car parked at a Melville reserve at the weekend.

Police said a woman walked past a blue sedan at Marmion Reserve on Marmion Street, an area used by footballers and netballers, about 12.45pm on Sunday September 17.

A person nearby then began calling out to a man in the driver’s seat of the car, with police believing he was committing an indecent act.

“The woman became concerned and ran back to her vehicle and drove away,” a police spokesman said.

The man is believed to be between 50 and 60 years of age and between 150-160cm tall, and had a grey beard.

Police would like to speak with the passerby who yelled at the man and anyone in the area around the time of this incident.

Call Crime Stoppers and quote reference number 8648.
