Police are searching for a suspect after a woman in Fall River reported being flashed Tuesday evening.

Halifax RCMP say just after 8 p.m. the woman was walking along Fall River Road, toward Highway 2, near the community hall. She reported seeing a white man in his 20s start running and she then crossed the street.

The man passed her, then turned around and exposed himself to her.

RCMP say he was last seen running on Jackson George Road.

Officers searched the area with help from a police dog, but were unable to find a suspect.

The man is described as a white male, approximately five foot six inches tall and weighs about 175 pounds, with a brownish goatee and short hair. He was wearing baggy jeans, sneakers, a red t-shirt and a ball cap.

Anyone with information is asked to call RCMP, Halifax Regional Police or Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
